Tribute To Dr. Cheryl Revkin—28Th Congressional District Woman Of The Year March 7, 2016
Adam Schiff, D-CA
"Mr. Speaker, I rise today in honor of Women’s History Month. Each year, we pay special tribute to the contributions and sacrifices made by our nation’s women. It is an honor to pay homage to outstanding women who are making a difference in my Congressional District. I would like to recognize a remarkable woman, Dr. Cheryl Revkin, of Silver Lake, a unique neighborhood in Los Angeles, California. Cheryl Revkin was born and raised in Chicago, Illinois. After obtaining her Bachelor’s Degree at the University of Wisconsin, she attended the Los Angeles College of Chiropractic where she received both her Bachelor’s of Science and Doctor of Chiropractic degrees. A compassionate chiropractor, Dr. Revkin made a commitment to donate one-third of her practice to individuals with no chiropractic insurance, such as the six patients a week that she treated who were referred to her from the Hollywood Sunset Free Clinic, patients with HIV, and many children. A community activist while running her practice in Silver Lake, after thirty-three years, Cheryl retired and devoted all of her time and talents to helping her community. Dr. Revkin’s involvement in Silver Lake community organizations is extensive. She was the Founder and President of the Silver Lake Chamber of Commerce, where she was active for more than two decades, and now acts as a consultant to the chamber. Currently, Cheryl serves as Co-Chair of the Silver Lake Neighborhood Council History Collective Committee, a position she has held for over a decade, is a board member of the Friends of the Silver Lake Library, and volunteers with CollegePath LA at John Marshall High School. In addition, Dr. Revkin is on the Los Angeles City Disability Access Review Board Commission, helps out in the Los Angeles Neighborhood Justice Program and the Center for the Study of Political Graphics, and serves on the Board of Automata, a puppet theatre in Los Angeles. For her efforts, Cheryl received the Pioneer Woman of the Year Award from then-Los Angeles City Councilman Eric Garcetti. Dr. Revkin has one daughter, Casey Revkin and one grandchild, Emil Ryan, who also live in Silver Lake. I ask all Members to join me in honoring an exceptional woman of California’s 28th Congressional District, Dr. Cheryl Revkin, for her extraordinary service to the community."

Honoring Jeffrey A. Been Of The Legal Aid Society On His Retirement February 1, 2016
John Yarmuth, D-KY
"Mr. Speaker, I rise today to recognize the career of Louisville resident Jeffrey A. Been as he retires after 24 years of service at the Legal Aid Society in Louisville, Kentucky. Named Executive Director at the Legal Aid Society in 2005, Jeff’s legacy at the helm of this important organization includes leading the fight to maintain funding for legal services for the poor during the Great Recession, building relationships with community partners to ensure that our city’s most disadvantaged neighbors have access to the courts and other supportive services, and expanding programming for homeowners, domestic violence victims, and veterans. In his time at the organization, he also created innovative technology tools to help facilitate greater access to our justice system for all. Jeff served as Associate Director of the Legal Aid Society from 2000-2005 and as Project Director of the organization’s HIV/AIDS Legal Project from 1992-2000. Prior to his work at Legal Aid in Louisville, Jeff served as a prosecutor, judicial law clerk, staff attorney for the U.S. Court of Appeals, Seventh Circuit, and on the faculty at the Indiana School of Law. Jeff also founded the HIV/AIDS Legal Project of Indiana, one of the first programs in the nation to provide free legal services to people living with HIV disease. He is also the recipient of several awards for his professional service, including the University of Louisville Brandeis School of Law Dean’s Service Award, the Louisville Bar Association’s Justice Martin E. Johnstone Special Recognition Award, and the Kentucky Bar Association’s Donated Legal Service Award. On behalf of the people of Kentucky’s Third Congressional District and the City of Louisville, I extend my best wishes to Jeff as he begins a much deserved retirement."
