SCPA Presents Alan Grayson-American Insight

Sep 4, 2017

The SCPA is delighted to present Alan Grayson, three-term Congressman

of the 9th District of Florida, as he shares his “American Insight” on:

 

• the present state of our country

• what it means to be a Progressive

• the “Reality” of Donald Trump’s

Presidency

• our role in protecting the

democracy that we all cherish

 

A summa cum laude Harvard graduate in economics (Phi Beta

Kappa), a Jurisdoctorate magna cum laude, and further educational

accomplishments in Public Policy, Government and Gerontology, he

speaks from deep knowledge and vast experience. An outspoken leader, Grayson

ran for the Senate in 2016 as the “Senator with Guts”. Amber Phillips of The Washington

Post writes: “Rep. Alan Grayson (D) is a figure in Florida politics - and one who

may represent a younger, more liberal, anti-establishment wing of the Democratic

Party that Florida Democrats can’t live without.” In July 2013, David Weigel of Slate

magazine called him "the most effective member of the House" and said that he

was approaching "an unheralded title: The congressman who’s passed more

amendments than any of his 434 peers."

 

Today Grayson is a politically active champion fighting for social security, food

stamps, Medicare, unemployment insurance and services for the disadvantaged.

 

This is a free event, although donations are always appreciated!  If you would like to 

meet and chat with Alan in person, please join us at the "Meet and Greet" fund raiser

to benefit the SCPA just prior to the main event.  

 

There will be no SCPA event at the Front St. Civic Center in September.
