Sen. Joe Lieberman

EWA Speaker

In Eastern Washington, event attendees will enjoy a candid conversation with Sen. Joe Lieberman on strengthening America through engaged foreign policy, school choice and national civility.

One of America’s most principled statesmen, Joseph I. Lieberman is a former U.S. Senator from Connecticut and was the Democratic nominee for Vice President in 2000. He is one of his party’s leading voices on issues including school choice and protecting America, voicing powerful support for the Trump Administration’s move of the U.S. Embassy in Israel to Jerusalem and withdrawal of the United States from the Iran Nuclear Deal. He worked tirelessly to preserve the D.C. Opportunity Scholarship Program, saying simply “a child’s education shouldn’t be limited based on their zip code or family’s income.” In 2016, he joined the board for the American Federation for Children, a national school choice advocacy organization. Senator Lieberman was educated at Yale. He is one of only a handful of Americans to speak at both the Democratic and Republican National Conventions.
