House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi to Hold Student Town Hall at the Georgetown Institute of Politics and Public Service

House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-California) will come to Georgetown on April 24 at 11 a.m. for a town hall conversation with students about issues that matter to young adults, and her vision for “A Better Deal for America.”

This event, which will take place in the university’s Gaston Hall, is sponsored by the Georgetown Institute of Politics and Public Service (GU Politics) at the McCourt School of Public Policy. Mo Elleithee, GU Politics executive director, will moderate the question-and-answer session.

In April 2016, House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wisconsin) held a similar conversation in advance of the presidential election.

“Too often in politics we talk about young people, when we should actually be talking with young people,” Elleithee said.  “We’re excited to facilitate this conversation between students and Leader Pelosi to discuss the issues most important to young people.”

Pelosi will take questions from Georgetown students in Gaston Hall, and students may also submit questions in advance via social media channels such as Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and Snapchat using @GUPolitics and #PelosiAtGU.  

A Georgetown University ID is required for entry into the event, and the town hall will be webcast live at

Founded in 2015, the Institute of Politics and Public Service (GU Politics) at Georgetown’s McCourt School of Public Policy is the first Institute of its kind in the nation’s capital.  Established with a mission of encouraging young people to reimagine politics as a form of public service, GU Politics connects and empowers students and the broader community in an effort to understand the real practice of politics, explore ways to do it better, and reaffirm its promise.
