The Public Participation Project is working to pass federal anti-SLAPP legislation in Congress. Our coalition of supporters currently includes numerous organizations and businesses, as well as prominent individuals. PPP also assists individuals and organizations working to pass anti-SLAPP legislation in the states. An important part of our work includes educating the public regarding SLAPPs and the consequences of these types of destructive lawsuits.
Evan Mascagni is the Policy Director of the Public Participation Project. Prior to moving to New York City, he was an attorney with the California Anti-SLAPP Project, a public interest law firm and policy organization dedicated to fighting SLAPPs in California. He graduated, summa cum laude, from the University of the District of Columbia, David A. Clarke School of Law, where he was Editor-in-Chief of the UDC Law Review.
