Join us for coffee and conversation with U.S. Rep. Joaquin Castro.
Castro, D-San Antonio, was elected to the U.S. House in 2012 representing Texas’ 20th district, which covers a large portion of San Antonio and Bexar County. He serves on the Armed Services and the House Foreign Affairs committees. He was the 2013 co-president of the House freshman Democrats and named Assistant Whip for House Democrats. Previously, Castro was elected at 28 years old to the Texas Legislature and served five terms as a state representative for District 125. In the Texas House, he served as vice chairman of the Higher Education Committee and Democratic floor leader.
