Nancy Pelosi to Speak at Free Harris Democrats’ Virtual Event
DNC Chair Jaime Harrison, Judge Lina Hidalgo to Join Johnson Rayburn Richards Fundraiser
HOUSTON, TX – House Speaker Nancy Pelosi will be the headliner for the annual Harris County Democratic Party’s Johnson Rayburn Richards Fundraiser. A conversation between Pelosi and Judge Lina Hidalgo will take place on March 25 at 5 p.m. The virtual event will also feature DNC Chair Jaime Harrison.
“It’s going to be an amazing program,” said Lillie Schechter, HCDP Chair. “We are thrilled that Speaker Pelosi agreed to join us and are equally excited that DNC Chair Harrision and Judge Hidalgo will also be participating. Speaker Pelosi has consistently recognized the importance of Harris County in national politics.”
The theme for the night — “Our Time is Now” — was selected, said Schechter, “to reflect the opportunities we have to right the wrongs of the last administration and to introduce legislation that will improve the lives of all Americans.”
“As Harris County Democrats, it is more important than ever to unite with our national Democrats in the continued fight for social justice,” Schechter said.
“We are grateful to the Host Committee — made up of elected officials, party activists and community leaders — whose generous contributions are the reason we are able to bring this one-of-a-kind event to the public for free.”
