Pelosi to be awarded Pro­file in Courage Award

The Tribune (SLO) - - News -

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has been named the re­cip­i­ent of the 2019 John F. Kennedy Pro­file in Courage Award.

Caroline Kennedy, the daugh­ter of the late pres­i­dent, said in a state­ment Sun­day that the Cal­i­for­nia Demo­crat is “the most im­por­tant woman in Amer­i­can po­lit­i­cal his­tory.”

Pelosi is be­ing hon­ored be­cause of her ef­forts to pass for­mer Pres­i­dent Barack Obama’s 2010 health care law and for help­ing Democrats re­claim con­trol of the U.S. House dur­ing last year’s elec­tions.

Pelosi called the award “a great per­sonal and of­fi­cial honor.”
