Talk of the Hill with Bill Press: Reverend Dr. Luis León – POSTPONED
Thursday, July 11, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
This event has been postponed. Please stand by for a rescheduled date. If you would like a refund in the meantime, please contact email@example.com.
Award-winning journalist, political insider and Capitol Hill resident Bill Press sits down for a one-on-one, thought-provoking conversation with Reverend Dr. Luis León.
Until last year, Rev. León was pastor of “The Church of the Presidents,” St. John’s Episcopal at Lafayette Square. His amazing journey started in Cuba, emigrating to the US in 1961 at age 12 as part of the “Peter Pan” exodus, a church sponsored program bringing unaccompanied minors to the U.S. to circumvent the Castro regime. Rev. León has seen five presidents in the pews, from Bill Clinton to the current inhabitant of the White House.
