The event, from 5:30 to 8 p.m. at Acts Full Gospel Church of God in Christ, 1034 66th Ave. in Oakland, is open to the public. In addition to Pelosi, D-San Francisco, and Lee, D-Oakland, Congressional Progressive Caucus co-chair Raul Grijalva, D-Ariz., also is scheduled to attend.
Lee is hosting the meeting “to allow constituents from the 9th Congressional District to voice their concerns about the need for sustainable jobs in their communities and to urge members of Congress to focus on legislation that would spur the creation of jobs nationwide,” her news release said.
It’s part of a Congressional Progressive Caucus initiative of letting people share personal stories about the lack of job opportunities for people willing to work. Stories recorded at this meeting will be read into the Congressional Record on the House floor.
