Rosa DeLauro

October 25, 2019

Over 100 people stood and cheered for Rep. Rosa DeLauro, D-New Haven, at the end of her hour-long speech about her own experience in politics and the national “social safety net” in the Yale Law School on Thursday.

DeLauro’s speech, which was open to the public, was the beginning of a three-part evening lecture and dinner to honor her as this fall’s Chubb Fellow. The Chubb Fellowship, which began in 1949 to award someone in public service, is given out each year by Timothy Dwight’s Head of College, who is now Mary Lui. Previous award winners include U.S. presidents, Supreme Court justices, senators and other well-known Americans in public service.
