Senator Gillibrand to speak at Maxwell on workplace proposals


United States Senator Kirsten Gillibrand recently spoke at the Maxwell School as part of the State of Democracy Lecture series. Gillibrand’s talk, “The American Opportunity Agenda,” addressed proposals to help more middle-class women workers gain financial security by modernizing America’s outdated workplace policies.

Gillibrand was first sworn in as U.S. senator from New York in January 2009.  Prior to her service in the Senate, she served in the U.S. House of Representatives, representing 10 counties in upstate New York’s 20th congressional district.  She serves on the Senate agriculture, armed services, and aging committees.
