Summary
  • Part memoir, part how-to, and part progressive political handbook, this book takes the reader on a journey that begins in the Haitian-American enclave in Queens, New York, where Jean-Pierre grew up, and ends with her working in the Obama White House
  • 'If your idea of political power is a bunch of old seen-it-all cynics playing an inside game, Moving Forward will inspire you to believe every voice has the potential to be a mighty force for good. The poignantly honest story of Karine Jean-Pierre's journey proves that despite formidable obstacles and profound disappointments, a talented new voice can develop the strength and resilience to thrive and become a force for good who serves as a role model for the next generation of leaders. Looking for hope? Looking for inspiration? You'll find them here within this remarkable story.' --Valerie Jarrett, former senior advisor to President Obama. Most political origin stories have the same backbone. A bright young person starts reading the Washington Post in elementary school. She skips school to see a presidential candidate. In middle school she canvasses door-to-door. The story can be intimidating. It reinforces the feeling that politics is a closed system: if you weren't participating in debate club, the Young Democrats and Model UN you have no chance. Karine Jean-Pierre's story breaks the mold. In [this book], she tells how she got involved, showing how politics can be accessible to anyone, no matter their background. In today's political climate, the need for all of us to participate has never been more crucial. This book is her call to arms for those who know that now is the time for us to act. Karine Jean-Pierre's political experience has ranged widely from presidential campaigns to grassroots activism, from local politics to working in the White House. She is now the Chief Public Affairs Officer for MoveOn; a political analyst at MSNBC; and a member of the School of International and Public Affairs (SIPA) at Columbia University faculty, where she teaches a course on campaign management
