Congresswoman Barbara Lee discusses & signs Renegade for Peace and Justice
DIESEL, A Bookstore in Oakland is pleased to welcome Congresswoman Barbara Lee as she discusses and signs her book, Renegade for Peace and Justice. ABOUT THE BOOK: Barbara Lee's willingness to stand on principle earned her unsolicited international attention when she was the only member of Congress to vote against a resolution giving President George Bush virtually unlimited authority to wage war against nations he personally deemed capable of terrorism. Some praised her vote as heroic and inspirational, others called for her death. But this was not her only profile in courage. In addition to being one of Congress' most vocal opponents to the war in Iraq, Lee has been a leader in promoting policies that foster international peace, security, and human rights. Her principled stands include disavowing the doctrine of preemptive war, offering legislation to create a cabinet level Department of Peace, and leading the bipartisan effort in Congress to end the ongoing genocide in the Darfur. But this autobiography is about more than politics. In this candid and self-effacing book, Lee chronicles the challenges she overcame to break the cycle of multi-generational domestic violence, and her rise from being a young, single mother of two to being one of the most progressive, respected voices in Congress. Renegade for Peace and Justice dispels the myth that all members of Congress have led gilded, charmed lives. In this book you'll learn about the work of Congress in the days that followed September 11, 2001, and you'll also be inspired by the story of an African American woman, who rose from segregation and public assistance to become a member of Congress with a deep commitment to peace and improving the lives of the underprivileged.
