2013 Louis P. and Evelyn Smith First Amendment Award Honoring Barney Frank

Former Congressman Barney Frank is a Forum favorite, having graced our stage seven times since 1979. Last year, he completed his illustrious 32-year tenure in the U.S. House of Representatives, throughout which he was boldly outspoken at every opportunity. Frank consistently chose to be the voice of those who often have no voice: Combat Zone sex workers, the elderly, Japanese-Americans in WWII, and even animals. One of the most powerful statements he made on his defense of civil liberties was his opposition to “Respect for America’s Fallen Heroes,” proving that his support for the First Amendment supersedes any personal agenda. In light of how he has conducted such a vital, brave career, Ford Hall Forum presents Barney Frank with our 2013 First Amendment Award to commend his commitment to civic engagement, democracy, and expression.
 

Friday, April 26, 6:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.
C. Walsh Theatre, 55 Temple Street, Suffolk University
