June 5, 2017: Congresswoman Kathleen Rice

Congresswoman Kathleen Rice represents New York's fourth congressional district in Nassau County.  Now serving her second term, she is the top Democrat on the Homeland Security Subcommittee on Counterterrorism and Intelligence.  As a member of the Veterans' Affairs Committee, Kathleen established herself as a fierce advocate for veterans. 
In addition, she serves as a Vice Chair of the House Gun Violence Prevention Task Force, and helped organize a working group made up of former prosecutors from both parties to help develop bipartisan criminal justice reform legislation.
Kathleen is also a passionate advocate for women, fighting to ensure that women get equal pay for equal work and that all workers get paid leave, protect reproductive rights, improve public education for students most in need, and protect and strengthen Medicare and Social Security. 
The first woman elected District Attorney in Long Island history, Kathleen served as DA from 2006-2014, and received national acclaim for her efforts to combat drunk driving, which led to a statewide overhaul of DWI laws. 
AND, she's our guest for WEDLI's 2017 Judith McEvoy Legislative Breakfast!  Please join us for a chance to speak to this trailblazing woman.
