Nancy Pelosi


Speaker Emerita Nancy Pelosi has represented San Francisco in Congress for over 35 years. She served as the 52nd Speaker of the House of Representatives, having made history in 2007 when she was elected the first woman to serve as Speaker of the House.  She made history again in January 2019 when she regained her position second-in-line to the presidency – the first person to do so in more than six decades. She has championed a strong US/Israel relationship throughout her years of service.

“Eighty years ago, Mr. Speaker, on the Floor of this House, my father, as a Member of Congress, Thomas D'Alesandro from Maryland, called upon the Roosevelt Administration to support the establishment of the State of Israel in what was known as Palestine at the time.  He was early in calling for that – so it's in my DNA to protect that State of Israel.” - Speaker Emerita Pelosi
