And Our Next Consultation Speaker Is...
No, this isn't an April's Fools joke!
Our rollout of speakers scheduled for the 2009 Consultation on Conscience continues, and today, we're able to announce our third special guest: California's Sen. Barbara Boxer, will be joining us on Tuesday afternoon, April 21. The charismatic Sen. Boxer, who once ran on the gutsy campaign slogan "Barbara Boxer Gives a Damn!," is one of two Jewish women in the Senate (along with fellow California Senator Dianne Feinstein).
Sen. Boxer has held her current seat since 1993, after spending a decade in the House of Representatives. She holds the record for the most votes received in a Senatorial election, winning a whopping 6.9 million votes in her 2004 Senate reelection bid!
Sen. Boxer is a vocal advocate for issues including protecting the environment, health care reform and ensuring reproductive rights. As the Chairman of the Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works, she will oversee legislative efforts to reduce the pollutants we emit into the atmosphere and protect our earth for generations to come. Sen. Boxer also serves on the Senate Foreign Relations and Commerce, Science and Transportation committees - putting her at the center of some of the most critical international and domestic issues we face today.
So what does this mean for you, attendee of the 2009 Consultation on Conscience? It means that in just a few weeks, you'll have the opportunity to hear from one of our nation's top leaders about issues that are at the center of the Reform Movement's legislative priorities.
Stay tuned for our next exciting speaker announcement!
