Join us as we welcome Congressman Adam Schiff, who is serving his 9th term in the US House of Representatives representing California’s 28th Congressional District.  Adam is the Ranking Member of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence and a Member of the Benghazi Select Committee

A leader on national security and foreign policy efforts in Congress, Adam has pushed for a broader strategy that emphasizes diplomacy, intelligence reform, and efforts to stabilize countries that are at risk of becoming future failed states and havens for terrorists. He co-founded and chairs the Congressional Caucus for Freedom of the Press - a bipartisan, bicameral caucus that aims to advance press freedom around the world.

Adam also founded and co-chairs the International Creativity and Theft-Prevention Caucus and is a strong proponent of science and American leadership in space exploration. Prior to serving in the House of Representatives, Schiff served as the State Senator for California's 21st State Senate District, and as a federal prosecutor with the U.S. Attorney's Office in Los Angeles.

A member of the Stanford University Class of 1982, Adam received a J.D. from Harvard Law School in 1985..
