WORLD AFFAIRS: Social Programs Under Attack: A Conversation with Congresswoman DeLauro

July 10, 2017 @ 6:30 PM7:30 PM PDT

$7 – $20

Food stamps, Social Security disability insurance, the Affordable Care Act and other social programs are being called into question in Congress, and across the country, more so than ever before. At the heart of the debate, do federal social programs effectively benefit those who need it most or do these programs create fraud and dependency?

Join us in welcoming Rep. Rosa DeLauro from Connecticut, the senior Democrat on the Appropriations subcommittee responsible for funding the Departments of Labor, Health and Human Services, Education and related agencies. As a staunch defender of the working class, women and families, she will share her perspective on the fight over social programs and President Trump’s plans for the future of the United States.

SPEAKER:
Rosa DeLauro
Congresswoman, Connecticut, Third Congressional District
