A Special Program featuring US Representative Les AuCoin
Tuesday, January 28 | 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Join us for an evening with Congressman Les AuCoin as he shares the remarkable inside story of how he, his daughter Stacy, and Dr. Raisa Premsyler worked together to win freedom for the family of Raisa’s brother, Naum Chernobelsky. This program is adapted from a chapter in Congressman AuCoin’s new memoir, Catch and Release: An Oregon Life in Politics. All three individuals will participate in this program.
About Congressman AuCoin:
In 1974, Les AuCoin became the first Democrat to win a US House seat in Oregon’s First District. He was one of the post-Watergate reformers who shook up an insular, autocratic Congress, leading fights for affordable housing, “trickle-up” economics, wilderness protection, abortion rights, and nuclear arms control. AuCoin has said that freeing the Chernobelskys was one of the most important achievements of his 18-year career in the US House.
