Moskowitz and Chavez-DeRemer Launch Bipartisan Congressional Sneaker Caucus

Washington, DC

Washington, D.C. – Today, Representatives Jared Moskowitz (D-FL) and Lori Chavez-DeRemer (R-OR) launched the Congressional Sneaker Caucus (CSC). The caucus will encompass a bipartisan group of Members and staff dedicated to their shared love of sneakers and their impact on American culture and fitness.  

“The sneakers I wear across the Capitol represent a pathway back to my childhood and a connection to the next generation. They routinely are a starting point for conversation with my colleagues. That’s exactly why I launched this Caucus – to use sneakers to promote social interaction between Members of Congress, their staff, and visitors to the capitol,” said Moskowitz.

“I’m excited to join Congressman Moskowitz to launch the bipartisan Sneaker Caucus. From expressing style to demonstrating athleticism and innovation, sneakers are a fun part of our culture. It will be a light-hearted way to build relationships with other members of Congress and our constituents,” Chavez-DeRemer said.

“As the American footwear industry’s leading trade association, we applaud Representatives Moskowitz and Chavez-DeRemer for founding the Sneaker Caucus. Shoes impact every single American individual and family no matter their background. Sneakers also play a critical role in shaping our culture, art, entertainment, health, and fitness. There are so many things that seem to divide us as a country right now, but sneakers bring people together. We look forward to working with the Sneaker Caucus as it highlights the love of sneakers shared by so many Americans,” said Matt Priest, CEO of Footwear Distributors & Retailers of America.

MISSION: The role of the caucus is intended to be a means by which its members and staff can find common ground and foster bipartisan cooperation in Congress. The caucus will organize community events and social gatherings to promote interaction between members from both sides of the aisle.
