Barbara Lee: Keynote for Fundraising Event

California Congresswoman and noted sought-after speaker, Lee is a fierce advocate for civil rights, women’s rights and workers’ rights. She is an anti-war movement icon for casting the only Congressional vote against the use-of-force authorization after 9/11. In her thoughtful opposition statement, Lee warned her colleagues that they should be “careful not to embark on an open-ended war with neither an exit strategy nor a focused target.” Through her long career in public service, she has been a vocal proponent of HIV/AIDS research, gun law reform, fair housing, economic justice, and ending poverty.
