Tisch College Distinguished Speaker Series: JEFF FLAKE
Tuesday, March 12 | 6 PM | ASEAN Auditorium, Cabot Intercultural Center
Join Tisch College for a conversation about the Senate, presidential politics, and the Republican Party with former U.S. Senator Jeff Flake (R-AZ). A former member of the House of Representatives, Flake was elected in 2012 to the Senate, where he served on the powerful Senate Foreign Relations and Judiciary Committees. One of the Republican Party’s staunchest critics of President Trump, Flake announced he would not seek reelection during a 2017 Senate speech that famously denounced the President, party leaders, and the current “disrepair and destructiveness of our politics.” Prior to this political career, Flake served as a missionary in South Africa before graduating from Brigham Young University and as Director of the Foundation for Democracy in Namibia.
