Denver, CO -- (ReleaseWire) -- 06/02/2016 --Advocacy group, A Just Cause, announces this Thursday's, June 2, 2016 segment of AJC Radio's "Spotlight on Capitol Hill" will shine the spotlight on Congresswoman Zoe Lofgren of California (http://www.AJCRadio.com, 8-10 PM ET).
"Thanks to our unique radio segment, our elected representatives from all over the country have the opportunity to share their initiatives and achievements in the United States Congress with America," explains Lamont Banks, Executive Director of A Just Cause. "Our goal is to continually bring information to the American people, and raise awareness concerning the many issues we face in this country everyday," adds Banks.
"Congresswoman Zoe Lofgren is making a huge difference on Capitol Hill. She stands her ground in the face adversity with zero tolerance for bigotry and nonsense. It was a privilege to sit down with Congresswoman Lofgren for an exclusive interview from Washington D.C. You'll want to tune in this week to hear a true advocate for justice and equality on AJC Radio," adds Banks.
According to her official website, "Zoe Lofgren has been a Democratic member of the United States House of Representatives since 1995. She represents the 19th District of California, based in the "Capital of Silicon Valley," San Jose... She currently serves on the House Judiciary Committee, the House Science, Space and Technology Committee, and the Committee on House Administration... Zoe is Chair of the California Democratic Congressional Delegation, consisting of thirty-nine Democratic members of the House of Representatives from California. It is the most diverse delegation in the House and outnumbers all other state House delegations." (https://lofgren.house.gov/biography/)
"As the highest ranking Democrat and former chair of the Subcommittee on Immigration and Border Security, and a longtime immigration attorney and law professor, Zoe is recognized as an established champion of comprehensive immigration reform and a national leader in immigration policy. During the 113th Congress she played a key role in negotiating a comprehensive reform bill in the House of Representatives as part of an eight-person bipartisan working group... A staunch advocate for digital rights, Zoe was an early opponent of the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) and led a successful fight to stop bill in the House Judiciary Committee. Her Online Communications and Geolocation Protection Act would require law enforcement to obtain a warrant before retrieving communications and documents stored remotely or geolocation information about an individual."
