The Women in Defense Greater Boston Chapter (WID-GBC) is proud to announce an evening networking event in honor of Women’s History Month. The keynote for this evening is Congresswoman Niki Tsongas, who represents the Third District of Massachusetts. The Third District has a proud tradition of military service, and Congresswoman Tsongas honors that tradition, as well as the military family she grew up in, by serving as a senior member of the House Armed Services Committee. In this role, she has championed the fight to combat and prevent sexual assault in the military; authored numerous pieces of legislation that provide modern, cutting-edge resources, to our service members; and worked to support veterans transitioning to civilian life. She has also led the push for modernized body armor and is working to support the unparalleled innovation taking place at Massachusetts military installations. In 2017, she was elected by her peers to serve as the Ranking Member of the largest subcommittee, the Tactical Air and Land Forces Subcommittee. To learn more about Congresswoman Tsongas, click here
