Barney Frank to deliver lecture at General Synod

Saturday, March 10, 2007

Congressman Barney Frank is coming to the UCC's General Synod. From UC News:
U.S. Rep. Barney Frank (D-Mass.) will deliver the fifth Valerie E. Russell Lecture on June 25 at General Synod. The lecture, presented by the UCC-related Christians for Justice Action, is part of CJA's biennial luncheon, where the "Burning Bush Awards" will be presented to largely unsung UCC justice advocates.

Frank, who has served Massachusetts' 4th Congressional District since 1981, is chair of the House Financial Services Committee. Before coming to Congress, he was a Massachusetts State Representative and an assistant to then-Mayor Kevin White of Boston. He has also taught at several Boston area universities.
While Congressman Frank is popularly known as a gay rights advocate, he is also a strong advocate against divestment campaigns targeted at Israel like the one approved by the UCC General Synod last year.
