The city of West Hollywood is co-sponsoring the upcoming community event: Conversation with Congressmember Adam Schiff, on Saturday, April 21, 2018, at the City’s Council Chambers/Public Meeting Room at the West Hollywood Library, located at 625 N. San Vicente Boulevard. There will be a reception at 2:30, followed by a discussion from 3pm-4:30pm.
The discussion is all part of the upcoming California Women’s Law Center’s Distinguished Guest Speaker series. It will feature “An Update From Washington” with Congressmember Adam Schiff, who represents California’s 28th Congressional District. That includes the City of West Hollywood.
Now in his ninth term in the U.S. House of Representatives, Congressmember Adam Schiff currently serves as the Ranking Member of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence. Throughout his tenure in Congress, Schiff has focused on growing the economy, bolstering national security, strengthening our communities, helping small businesses, and improving education, safety and health care. Schiff has been an outspoken critic of the Trump Administration, specifically in regard to the Administration’s handling of the investigation into Russian meddling in the U.S. elections and attacks on intelligence agencies. Before being elected to Congress, Schiff served as a California State Senator (CD 21) where he chaired the Senate Judiciary Committee, the Senate Select Committee on Juvenile Justice, and the Joint Committee on the Arts. Schiff also served in the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Los Angeles for six years, most notably prosecuting the first FBI agent ever to be indicted for espionage.

Today, CWLC continues to serve as an advocate in California, working in collaboration with others to protect, secure and advance the civil rights of women and girls.
