Honoring The Tucson Peace Center’S 33Rd Annual Peace Fair & Music Festival February 13, 2015
Raúl Grijalva, D-AZ
"Mr. Speaker, I wish to recognize the Tucson Peace Center’s Peace Fair and Music Festival on its 33rd Anniversary next Saturday, February 28, 2015. The Tucson Peace Center is an umbrella organization for 150 of Tucson’s local peace, social justice, environmental, and labor groups. Regular Peace Fair participants include the Women’s International League of Peace and Freedom (WILPF, celebrating their 100th anniversary this year), Move to Amend, Veterans for Peace, the American Civil Liberties Union, AZ4NORML, Jobs With Justice, Nuclear Resister, Physicians for Social Responsibility, and Watershed Management Group among many others. Newly formed organizations like $15 Now, Arizonans for Gun Safety, Tucson United for Climate Action (TUCAN), and Friends of Rosa will also be on hand. The Peace Fair and Music Festival is an opportunity for residents to learn what is happening in their community while you catch up with old friends and make new ones. There are free activities for the kids like a labyrinth, face-painting, and a whimsy parade. The Culture of Peace Alliance will offer hands-on activities to entertain young fair-goers."
Awarding Congressional Gold Medal To The Foot Soldiers Who Participated In Bloody Sunday, Turnaround Tuesday, Or The Final Selma To Montgomery Voting Rights March In March Of 1965 February 11, 2015
Nancy Pelosi, D-CA
"Today, listening to our colleagues, I am reminded of a day almost a year ago, around March of last year, when we dedicated the statue of Rosa Parks in the Capitol of the United States. How exciting—an African American woman to join the ranks of all those men out there. Many more striving to bring diversity, recognizing the great leadership of Rosa Parks."
World Cancer Day February 4, 2015
Brian Higgins, D-NY
"Investing in medical research leads to advanced treatments and cures and has the potential to lower these devastating outcomes. It boosts the economy through job creation and new discoveries, and it allows America to maintain its position as a global leader in the fight for a cure. Yet, in the last decade, funding to the National Institutes of Health has been cut by nearly 25 percent. This is unacceptable. Last week, I reintroduced the Accelerating Biomedical Research Act with Representatives Rosa DeLauro and Peter King. It is a bill that invests in the fight against horrible disease."
Earned Income Tax Credit Awareness Day January 29, 2015
Sherrod Brown, D-OH
"Rosa Olea of Toledo works as a manager of a fast food restaurant and makes $9.35 an hour. Imagine that—a manager of a restaurant making $9.35 an hour. She said her family struggles to pay bills. The EITC has been a lifesaver since she found out about it through her local VITA center."
Free Trade Agreements January 27, 2015
Paul Tonko, D-NY
"Mr. Speaker, I yield to a good friend and colleague who is a very outspoken voice for social and economic justice, who has spoken to the unfairness of these negotiated arrangements for trade, and who has led us as a Democratic Caucus in this House to speak out forcefully about the fast-track process and about fair trade versus free trade. She is none other than my good friend and colleague from the Third District of the State of Connecticut, Rosa DeLauro."
