This week's special guest is Congresswoman Barbara Lee! 

Barbara Jean Lee is an American politician serving as the U.S. Representative for California's 13th congressional district. Now in her 12th congressional term, Lee has served since 1998, and is a member of the Democratic Party. The district, numbered as the 9th district from 1998 to 2013, is based in Oakland and covers most of the northern part of Alameda County. Lee is a former Chair of the Congressional Black Caucus (2009–2011) and the Chair Emeritus and former Co-Chair of the Congressional Progressive Caucus (2005–2009).

She is the Vice Chair and a founding member of the Congressional LGBTQ+ Equality Caucus. Lee has played a major role in the antiwar movement, notable for her vocal criticism of the Iraq War and for being the only member of Congress to vote against the authorization of use of force following the September 11 attacks.
