Includes a recorded panel discussion with notable politicians and thought-leaders from Colorado: Representative Leslie Herod, Representative James Coleman, Danielle Shoots, and Dr. Trudi Michelle Morrison, moderated by Simone D. Ross.

And a separate Q&A with Director/Producer Abby Ginzberg and Congresswoman Barbara Lee.

Truth to Power: Barbara Lee Speaks for Me tells the complex story of Representative Barbara Lee, a steadfast voice for human rights, peace and equality in the U.S. Congress for over 2 decades, who raised two sons as a single mother on food stamps and was the lone vote in opposition to the broad authorization of military force following the September 11th attacks. An all-star cast including Senator Cory Booker, Rep. John Lewis, Rep. Ayanna Pressley, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Van Jones, and author Alice Walker all share insights about what makes Barbara Lee unique as a public servant and as a truth-telling African American woman.
