Join us Tuesday, February 16th to hear Congressman Schneider

   

Legislative Update and reflections on recent news including the Capitol Attack and Impeachment vote

Brad Schneider represents Illinois’s 10th District in the United States House of Representatives, where he is serving his third term. He is a member of the House Committee on Ways and Means and House Committee on Small Business. He has previously served on the House Foreign Affairs and House Judiciary committees.

As a member of Congress, Brad is focused on building a thriving economy that works for all Americans, and ensuring every family has affordable health care, quality education and a rising standard of living.  He knows that our communities are stronger when small businesses invest and grow, our environment is healthy, and people are working together for a better future. 

Brad is committed to tackling the challenges we face as a nation, including protecting Medicare and Social Security for future generations, reforming our broken immigration system, passing sensible gun safety legislation, and critically, urgently taking action to reduce the rate and address the impacts of global climate change. 

He is also a staunch advocate for the rights of women, including ensuring equal pay for equal work and protecting every woman’s right to make her own health care decisions about her body. Brad also favors extending federal civil rights protections to the LGBTQ community and was a strong supporter marriage equality long before he held public office.

Brad remains an influential voice on foreign affairs in Congress and believes our nation and world benefit when the United States exercises leadership and engages with the international community. A longtime proponent of a strong U.S.-Israel relationship, Brad consistently leads on efforts in Congress to promote cooperation on security, counter Iran’s nefarious influence, and condemn efforts to delegitimize the Jewish state.
