Opening Reception and Happy Hour on Capitol Hill

Join us on Capitol Hill as we kick off InterAction’s 30th Anniversary Forum! Mingle with members of Congress at our opening reception where we will acknowledge lawmakers who have been leaders in fighting poverty and we will honor Representative Ted Poe (R-TX) for his tireless efforts on Water for the World and foreign aid reform legislation. Engage with lawmakers and congressional staff in a relaxed, fun atmosphere while enjoying drinks, hors d’oeuvres and a live jazz performance by the Robert Redd Trio. It is sure to be an evening to remember! For more information, please contact Delyse Lawless at
