“Hubert H Humphrey: The Art of the Possible” film



    The Tanque Verde Valley Democratic Club and LD 9 Democratic Committee invite you to join us at a screening of “Hubert H Humphrey: The Art of the Possible.”

    Humphrey’s most enduring achievements were in the areas of civil and human rights. Propelled to party prominence during the 1948 Democratic National Convention, the 37-year-old mayor of Minneapolis delivered an historic speech directly challenging the racist leadership of the U.S. Senate. Almost two decades later, Humphrey’s extensive network of church and civil rights leaders helped him to break the longest filibuster in senate history, resulting in the passage of the Civil Rights Act of 1964.

    Food and drinks available, please join us for our first joint fundraiser and to learn more about this amazing Democrat.
