ENG: Barbara Jean Lee (born July 16, 1946) is the U.S. Representative for California's 13th congressional district, serving East Bay voters from 1998 to 2013 during a time when the region was designated California's 9th congressional district. She is a member of the Democratic Party. She was the first woman to represent the 9th district and is also the first woman to represent the 13th district.

Lee is notable as the only member of either house of Congress to vote against the authorization of use of force following the September 11, 2001 attacks.

Congresswoman Barbara Lee Opposes Debt Ceiling Deal


Congresswoman Barbara Lee (D-CA) released the following statement in opposition to the debt ceiling deal released on Sunday night: “Of course, I don’t want to see our nation default, but after having reviewed this deal in detail, for a number of reasons, I am simply unable to support it. “First, it totally fails to address the urgent and most pressing crisis in the country: the lack of jobs and economic growth. At a time when investments are needed to jump start our economy and put people back to work, I believe this deal and its cuts-only approach is the wrong approach. ...


Lee Introd. Bill to Repeal the Authoriz. to Use Milit. Force


Congresswoman Barbara Lee, like Jeanette Rankin before her, bravely stood alone in Congress against a vote for war, the vote in 2001 for the so-called Authorization to Use Military Force, a Constitutionally dubious passing of the war decision buck to President Bush and his successors. A majority of Americans now believes that the Afghanistan War that followed that authorization never should have been begun and should, in fact, be ended. So, the Congresswoman, along with initial cosponsors Jones, Woolsey, Grijalva, Conyers, and Honda, is offering us a second chance, a chance to get our response ...


Rep. Barbara Lee: Race Is Still a Factor in America


Recently the question has again surfaced: “Do we live in a post-racial America?” While I recognize and celebrate the many victories won by the civil rights movement and the progress our society has made in facing issues of ongoing racial inequality, highlighted by the historic election of President Barack Obama, our nation still must address the many structural inequalities that have left far too many communities of color behind. Simply put, race is a factor in the growing economic inequalities we have in this country, and we can no longer afford to sweep this issue under the ...

What Happens After Ferguson?
Celebrities, pols, business, faith, and nonprofit leaders say the President and DOJ  must adopt community-centered policing strategies and end police militarization August 25, 2014, New York, NY – In an open letter, leaders from academia, business, the arts, labor, faith communities, and other local and national leaders are urging President Obama and the U.S. Department of Justice to take immediate action to address the issues impeding relations between police and communities, especially communities of color. The letter was posted today on WashingtonPost.com.

Such actions are essential to
Congresswoman Lee Responds to Uganda’s HIV Discrimination Law
Oakland, CA – Congresswoman Barbara Lee, co-chair of the Congressional HIV/AIDS Caucus and member of the Appropriations Committee’s subcommittee of State and Foreign Operations, released the following statement concerning Uganda’s new HIV discrimination law: “Having HIV is not a crime. I am gravely concerned by Uganda’s new HIV discrimination law, which criminalizes the transmission of HIV while promoting stigma and encouraging the breach of confidentiality between patients and medical providers.  This law not only violates human rights, but it endangers lives and undermines public health efforts. While I respect the sovereignty of all nations, we must ensure that international human rights standards are upheld everywhere, including the right to health. I hope that Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni and the legislature will heed the warnings of local and international health experts and institute proven reforms that strengthen public health systems and end
