The Least Among Us: Waging the Battle for the Vulnerable by Congresswoman Rosa DeLauro
Friday, December 8, 7:00pm
The outspoken Connecticut congresswoman’s impassioned defense of America’s safety net in the time of Trump tells the story of a quarter century of deal-making on behalf of people too often overlooked. From fatal industrial fires to devastating childhood poverty, DeLauro has witnessed it all and emerged convinced that social programs are worth going to the mat for, again and again. Part House of Cards, part progressive manifesto, The Least Among Us shares lessons about power, about how it’s gained and how it's wielded for everyone’s benefit. This timely talk and book discussion will address this country’s promise of opportunity for everyone, and will provide a forum in which to consider where our country’s health currently lies.
