Noah Krieger ’93 Memorial Lecture: Rep. Gabe Amo

February 26 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm

Join the Taubman Center for our annual Noah Krieger ’93 Memorial Lecture with Congressman Gabe Amo. The Noah Krieger ’93 Memorial Lecture was named for Noah Krieger, a Brown undergraduate who was interested in political science, public policy, and economics, who died shortly after graduating from Brown. The series, established by his parents, brings distinguished public servants to campus. Congressman Amo is a native of Pawtucket, Rhode Island and the son of two parents from West Africa – his mother is originally from Liberia and father is originally from Ghana. As the son of a mother who is a nurse and a father who owns a liquor store, he understands what it is like to grow up in a working class family. His story is one that is familiar to many in Rhode Island: one of hard work, resilience, grit, and determination. Congressman Amo’s professional and personal experiences have ensured that he is ready to deliver for the people of Rhode Island’s First Congressional District. He is focused on representing all of the diverse communities in our district and taking on priorities including: strengthening retirement security for our seniors, ending gun violence, ensuring resilience to climate change, securing reproductive freedom, and protecting our democracy. Congressman Amo is committed to fighting for federal policies and resources that elevate economic opportunities for the working families in the First District and support job creation in the supply chains of the future.Backpacks and large bags are not allowed.
