US Rep. Barbara Lee (D-CA) Was Here


US Rep. Barbara Lee (D-CA), one of the most progressive members of US Congress, visited Atlanta this weekend as part of a function hosted by Georgia Women’s Action for New Directions.

“After the horrific September 11th attacks, Congresswoman Barbara Lee cast the sole vote against giving President Bush a blank check to wage war,” Georgia WAND noted in a press release.

“First elected in 1998, Congresswoman Leeis a member of the House of Appropriations Committee and is the Chairwoman of the Congressional Black Caucus.”

Lee was here to promote her new autobiographical book, Barbara Lee Speaks for Me.
