Denver, CO -- (ReleaseWire) -- 03/02/2017 --Advocacy group, A Just Cause, announces this Thursday's, March 2, 2017 segment of AJC Radio's, "Spotlight on Capitol Hill" will shine the spotlight on Congressman Steve Cohen of Tennessee (D-TN) (http://www.AJCRadio.com, 8-10 PM ET).
Congressman Cohen is an outspoken speaker and debater on Capitol Hill, which is why he has been able to accomplish so much over the years. He applies knowledge and careful consideration to the legislation he proposes, addressing the issues that matter most. He has proven to be a responsible leader, which is what the American people need to reach resolutions. Congressman Cohen is articulate, straightforward, and persistent.
Prior to his election to the US House of Representatives, Congressman Cohen practiced civil and criminal law for his own law firm, and served three years as Legal Advisor for the Memphis Police Department. Some may criticize or refer to Congressman Cohen as tough, but it is merely a reflection of his passion for public service. Through the years, he's earned the respect of tenured colleagues on Capitol Hill, and those in the African-American community for the stand he takes in national, state, and local politics.
"Upon election to the U.S. House of Representatives in 2006, Congressman Cohen immediately distinguished himself on the Hill for his thoughtful legislation and quick wit. He also quickly earned a reputation as a champion of civil rights and justice on the highly influential Judiciary Committee, with then-Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi referring to him as the "conscience of the freshman class" in 2008" ... "Congressman Cohen has remained a steadfast leader on issues of importance to the people of the 9th District, working closely with former President Barack Obama and leading the policy debate on issues like infant mortality, universal health care, the economy, crime and criminal rehabilitation, veterans issues, transportation and infrastructure, and of course, education."

Per the official website: "Congressman Steve Cohen is a fourth-generation Memphian who has dedicated his life to public service. As a child, the challenges of living with polio taught him how to overcome obstacles through persistence and determination, values which would shape his career as a legislator. Filing to run for office on the same day he first registered to vote, Congressman Cohen stepped onto the path that has defined his life and affected the lives of people in Memphis, across Tennessee and now across America throughout his career in national, state and local politics."
