Congressman Jamie Raskin is the U.S. Representative for Maryland’s 8th Congressional District. He recently served as the Lead House Manger during the second Senate impeachment Trial of former President Donald Trump, which ended with a 57-43 vote to convict.


He is currently serving his third term on the Judiciary, House Oversight, and House Administration Committees and is serving his second term on the Rules Committee and the Select Subcommittee on Coronavirus Crisis.

Prior to his time in Congress, Raskin was a three-term State Senator in Maryland, where he served as the Senate Majority Whip. He earned a reputation for building coalitions in Annapolis to deliver a series of landmark legislative accomplishments, including marriage equality, abolition of the death penalty, a ban on the sale of military-style assault weapons, and a hike in the minimum wage.


A professor of constitutional law for more than a quarter-century at American University Washington College of Law, Congressman Raskin has written several books, including the Washington Post Bestseller Overruling Democracy: The Supreme Court v. the American People and We the Students: Supreme Court Cases for and About America’s Students. He and a collaborator recently wrote a new proposed Maryland State Song to replace the existing one, which has been criticized for its racist and pro-Confederate lyrics.


Congressman Raskin is a magna cum laude graduate of Harvard College and Harvard Law School, where he served as an Editor of the Harvard Law Review. 

This event will also be recorded, and the link to that recording will be posted on the LFV event page after the event www.littlefallsvillage.org/Raskin.


This event is presented by COFFE (Council of Former Federal Executives & Associates) in collaboration with Little Falls Village and in partnership with the Little Falls Library of Montgomery County Public Libraries.
