We are very proud to announce that our speaker for the April Meeting will be Debbie Wasserman Schultz!
For more than 20 years, Debbie Wasserman Schultz has dedicated her public life to working on behalf of the people of South Florida. Debbie represents Florida’s 23rd Congressional district, which encompasses parts of Broward County. Until redistricting in 2012, Debbie represented Wilton Manors. Before joining the U.S. Congress, she was first a Representative and later a Senator in the Florida State Legislature.
Debbie is a person respected by her colleagues for her tenacity and her hard work on many important issues. In March 2009, after announcing her own battle with breast cancer, she introduced the Education and Awareness Requires Learning Young Act, or EARLY Act (H.R. 1740), a piece of legislation that directs the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to develop and implement a national education campaign about the threat breast cancer poses to all young women, and the particular heightened risks of certain ethnic, cultural and racial groups. This bill became law as part of the Affordable Health Care Act in March, 2010.
Debbie strongly supports the LGBT community and is a member of the Congressional LGBT Equality Caucus, serving as its vice chair in past years. One of Debbie’s surgeries for breast cancer was right before the Stonewall Street Festival in 2008. She rode in the parade while fighting the pain from the surgery and didn’t breathe a word about just having finished surgery. Debbie is our champion here at home, as well as in Washington, and especially when she stands up to the bullies on national television.
