The Pamplin Society of Fellows and Lewis & Clark College are proud to host Washington State Senator Pramila Jayapal as this year’s Distinguished Visiting Scholar!
Pramila Jayapal is now a senator representing the 37th legislative district of Washington state and has recently announced that she is running for US Congress.
Born in India, Senator Jayapal was sent here at age 16 by her parents who wanted the best life for her. Since then, she’s worked tirelessly through diverse and difficult experiences, but above all, she has refined herself into a person deeply committed to all people and the planet, rather than special interests and corporations.
Her lecture will discuss how her years of immigrant and minority rights activism experience has shaped her progressive, social justice approach to politics.
