Entry Title Date
Recognizing Steven Lucyshyn May 15, 2015
Louise Slaughter, D-NY
"Mr. Speaker, I rise today to commemorate the life of a veteran and member of the Rochester community, Steven Lucyshyn."
Commendation For The Life Of Calvin Peete May 13, 2015
Corrine Brown, D-FL
"Calvin did not begin playing golf until he was in his 20s, but immediately excelled at a game most pros learn as young children. He learned the game while peddling goods to migrant workers in Rochester, New York, playing on the public course at Genesee Valley Park. He was in the top 10 of the Official World Golf Ranking for several weeks when they debuted in 1986. He was the leader in driving accuracy for 10 straight years. This is even more incredible due to the fact that he could not straighten his left arm."
Justice For Victims Of Trafficking Act Of 2015—Continued April 22, 2015
Amy Klobuchar, D-MN
"I want to end by telling you what this is about. It is about a 12-year-old girl in Rochester who got a text message. The text message said she was invited to a party. The text said to go meet in a parking lot. She went there, and then she was thrown into a car, brought up to the Twin Cities, raped by a man, then sold on craigslist, sold for sex, and raped by two other men. Finally, weeks later, the guy who did this was found, and he is being prosecuted federally."
Recognizing Ronald Wiley April 13, 2015
Louise Slaughter, D-NY
"In Rochester, Ronald served for 14 years as editor-in-chief of Kodak’s weekly employee newspaper, Kodakery. In this capacity, he helped to lift the spirit of the Kodak family and kept them connected, informed."
Reintroducing The National Women’S Rights History Project Act March 26, 2015
Louise Slaughter, D-NY
"It is fitting that we reintroduce this bill during March, which is Women’s History Month. I am especially proud that it was in Rochester, New York where Susan B. Anthony fought so hard for the rights that women throughout this country rely on today. Among her many efforts, Susan B. Anthony established the Equal Rights Association to refute ideas that women were inferior to men and to fight for women’s right to vote. She also fought to tear down the walls holding women back from higher education."
