Eric Swalwell will make a campaign stop in Alabama on Thursday

Congressman Eric Swalwell (D-California) will bring his presidential campaign to Alabama on Thursday, June 20. Swalwell will be in Birmingham for a meet and greet event with the Alabama Young Democrats.

“I’m coming to share my call with the Alabama Young Democrats to go big in the problems we tackle, be bold with the solutions we offer, and do good with the way we govern,” Swalwell said. “From a woman’s right to make her own health decisions, to voting rights, to cleaning up government corruption, the Alabama Young Democrats are leading the charge and I’m honored to have an opportunity to meet with them.”

Swalwell will be meeting with the Young Democrats at the Birmingham District Brewing Co. at 2201 2nd Ave S Suite 102, in Birmingham.

Swalwell’s campaign motto is: “Go big, be bold, do good.”

Swalwell is promising to put his experience and energy to work for America. He was first in his family to go to college and served as a prosecutor and city councilman before winning his House seat in 2012. His campaign priorities include: ending gun violence; providing healthcare for all; finding cures for our deadliest diseases; reducing student loan debt; and combating climate chaos. Swalwell says that he is fighting to bring the promise of America – that hard work must lead to a better life for you and your family – to all Americans.

Swalwell recently released his plan to curb gun violence; which includes a near total ban of civilian ownership of assault weapons.
