Keynote Speaker

Congressman Eric Swalwell
Member of the U.S. House of Representatives
California's 15th District

Eric Swalwell was elected in 2012 to represent California’s 15th Congressional District, which includes a large part of the eastern San Francisco Bay Area.

A former deputy district attorney and city councilman, Congressman Swalwell is co-chair of the Democratic Steering and Policy Committee; serves on the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, where he is ranking member on the CIA Subcommittee; and serves on the Judiciary Committee.


Congressman Swalwell founded and chairs Future Forum, a group of 26 young Democratic Members of Congress focused on issues and opportunities for millennial Americans including student loan debt and home ownership.


In his first term, Congressman Swalwell co-founded the bipartisan United Solutions Caucus to bring new Members together to advance common-sense solutions and overcome the partisan divide. In his second term, Swalwell co-founded the bipartisan Sharing Economy Caucus to explore how this burgeoning new economic sector can benefit more Americans.


He flies home to his district almost every weekend, and has been a leader in adopting social media such as Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Snapchat as well as technology like Skype to stay in constant contact with constituents.
