We're pleased to share that Congresswoman Barbara Lee (D-CA 13th District) has received a 2016 Trumpet Award.
For nearly 18 years, Lee has served East Bay by representing a unique vantage point––even when it was unpopular to speak her mind. Her fearless activism includes a wide range of topics, such as HIV/AIDS awareness, income inequality, and an anti-war stance.
Beyond that, Lee also plays the piano and is a longtime jazz enthusiast!
