Event Information: 

Please join Fels for a virtual conversation with US Senator Elizabeth Warren followed by a discussion with political strategist, Chris Sautter.

Elizabeth Warren, a fearless consumer advocate who has made her life's work the fight for middle class families, was re-elected to the United States Senate for a second term on November 6, 2018, by the people of Massachusetts. She is widely credited for the original thinking, political courage, and relentless persistence that led to the creation of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, which she helped stand up and has successfully protected millions of consumers from financial tricks and traps often hidden in mortgages, credit cards, and other financial products. Elizabeth is one of the nation's leading progressive voices, fighting for big structural change that would transform our economy and rebuild the middle class.

Elizabeth and her husband Bruce have been married for 39 years. They have three grandchildren and a golden retriever named Bailey.
