SPECIAL GUEST: U.S. Representative Lois J. Frankel (FL-21) Co-Chair, Democratic Women’s Caucus. A trailblazer in the Florida State Legislature, Congresswoman Lois Frankel served as the first woman Democratic minority leader. She became a leading force to improve the economic condition of families and seniors and protect human rights and women’s reproductive freedom – fights she continues today in Congress as co-chair of the Democratic Women’s Caucus.
Rep. Frankel has spent her lifetime delivering positive change to her community as a civic leader, state legislator, mayor, and now Member of the United States House of Representatives where she sits on the House Appropriations Committee and House Committee on Veteran’s Affairs. Prior to her election to Congress, Rep. Frankel served as Mayor of West Palm Beach, raising her city to a new vitality and earning a reputation as an innovative problem-solver.
We have supported important local nonprofit initiatives for several years through our Democrats Care bi-annual program. This year, we have selected one that addresses broader national challenges to its existence, the health and welfare of women, and their reproductive rights.
