Congresswoman and Democratic National Committee Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz challenges America to resolve the toughest issues of our day for the sake of our children. An owner’s manual for America’s democracy, For the Next Generation explains the challenges facing America today, how we got here, and how we can and must move beyond our differences for our children—the next generation.
Debbie Wasserman Schultz has been a member of the U.S. House of Representatives from South Florida since 2005. Schultz was the first Jewish woman elected to represent Florida in the U.S. Congress. She became chairperson of the Democratic National Committee in 2011.
"Debbie Wasserman Schultz’s personal stories in For the Next Generation reveal a woman with the grit of a fighter, the courage of a leader, and the heart of a mom. If you want to ensure a better world for your children and grandchildren, you cannot help but be inspired by this book." -Carole King, singer, songwriter, environmental activist
This annual lecture is made possible by a generous endowment from Tamara and Harry Handelsman in honor of the memory of Tamara Handelsman’s brother, Gerald L. Bernstein.
