Congresswoman Jackie Speier (D-San Francisco/San Mateo counties) announced today that she has a limited amount of tickets available to constituents of the 14th Congressional District to watch the broadcast of Pope Francis when he addresses the Joint Meeting of Congress on Thursday, September 24, 2015.
“The Pope has become a focal point across the world for prioritizing peace over war, care of the planet over consumption, forgiveness over accusation, and neighbor over self,” Speier said. “I’m excited that 50 of my constituents have the opportunity to be on the West Lawn of the Capitol to watch the broadcast of the Pope’s address to members of Congress. My only regret is that I can’t make these tickets available to everyone.”
