Nancy Pelosi Crosscut festival 2021

Session: Madam Speaker

6 p.m. Friday, May 7

At the helm of Congressional leadership, and having served in Congress since 1987, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has had a front-row seat for many of the most profound and impactful moments in our government’s history. Often she has been center stage. The last year included some of the most challenging and unprecedented moments of them all. Pelosi sits down with Judy Woodruff, who has anchored PBS Newshour’s coverage of most of these stories, for a conversation about this era of upheaval, Pelosi’s partnership with the Biden administration, and what Congress plans to do to tackle our many urgent issues. Judy Woodruff will be interviewing Rep. Nancy Pelosi.
