Congresswoman Rosa L. DeLauro
U.S. Congresswoman Rosa DeLauro, who has represented Connecticut’s Third District since 1991 and is a member of the House Democratic leadership, is here this evening with an impassioned, vital book for these times, The Least Among Us: Waging the Battle for the Vulnerable (The New Press).
“Congresswoman Rosa DeLauro is a one-woman truth squad when it comes to calling out the falsehoods and cruelties of current right-wing efforts to slash Social Security, health insurance, and other safety net programs for America’s middle-class and poor families. Her vividly narrated book weaves together policy ideas and personal stories, her own and others, to highlight the high stakes in current battles and point to a better future, where our democracy boosts opportunity and security for all.”—Theda Skocpol.
“There is no greater champion for America’s women and families. I am awed and inspired every day by her passion, her spirit, her dedication and determination to fight for our values.” —U.S. Senator Elizabeth Warren.
