Congratulations to Congresswoman Barbara Lee on her wedding engagement

Do you have any New Year’s Eve plans, Meredith C?

I do… I’m getting married!

I’ll be ringing in the new year surrounded by friends and family, as I marry the most wonderful man I’ve ever met, Rev. Dr. Clyde W. Oden, Jr.

He is a retired African Methodist Episcopalian minister and has been a leader in many social justice causes close to my heart.

As one of my best supporters, I couldn’t wait to introduce my newest constituent to you!

I’m busy prepping for the wedding, but before I log off I need to ask:

Will make a donation of whatever amount is meaningful to you before we close the books on our end-of-year fundraising? This is the biggest deadline we’ve faced so far, so if you’ve been waiting for the right moment to give — the time is now. Donate here.


As we ring in the new year, I want to thank you for your support, warm wishes, and for staying woke.

In solidarity,

Barbara Lee
