Event Description

The JP Forum hosts Vermont Senator Bernard Sanders in his only public Boston appearance.  Bernie is the longest serving independent member of Congress in U.S. history. He has been an outspoken champion for peace, worker rights, energy independence, environmental health, and fair taxation. During the 2010 Lame Duck Congress, the nation watched as Senator Sanders gave a riveting speech rebuking the tax compromise between the White House and the Republican leadership in the House and Senate.  He has spent his entire career fighting for the people of Vermont and United States. This Valentines Day Eve, come show Bernie some love!
