A Special Program featuring US Representative Les AuCoin, Tuesday, January 28, 7:00pm

Join us for an evening with Congressman Les AuCoin as he shares the remarkable inside story of how he, his college-aged daughter Stacy, and Dr. Raisa Premsyler of Neveh Shalom beat the Anti-Semite Soviets in the late ‘80s to win freedom for the family of Naum Chernobelsky, Raisa’s brother, a Russian Refusenik. Our 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.
