Nancy Pelosi to be awarded JFK Profile in Courage Award

The current Speaker of the House will be honored at the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library and Museum in Boston next month. Nancy Pelosi will receive the Profile in Courage Award for helping to pass the Affordable Care Act (ACA), according to the organization. She will also be honored for work she did leading up to the 2018 midterms.

Speaker Pelosi leads with strength, integrity and grace under pressure — using her power to protect the most vulnerable of our citizens,” Caroline Kennedy, honorary president of the John F. Kennedy Library Foundation, said in a press release. “She is the most important woman in American political history and is a true Profile in Courage.”
