At part of its continuing program of Celebration of Women, NA’AMAT is honoring Lois Frankel, US Congresswoman who represents the 21st district, in Palm Beach County. Frankel has spent a lifetime delivering positive change to her community as a civic leader, state legislator, mayor, and now member of the US House of Representative where she sits on the House Transportation and Infrastructure and Foreign Affairs Committees.
A trailblazer in the Florida State legislature, Frankel served as the first woman Democratic minority leader. She became a leading force to improve the economic condition of families and seniors and protect human rights and women’ reproductive freedom–fights she continues today in Congress as co-chair of the Women’s Caucus.
