About the Program

When was the last time you got to spend your Friday afternoon with a Member of Congress? Not just any member, but the fierce advocate and fighter Congresswoman Jackie Speier, author of the memoir, Undaunted: Surviving Jonestown, Summoning Courage, and Fighting Back.

From the harrowing attack at Jonestown that killed Congressman Leo Ryan and left 28 year old staffer Speier for dead with 5 bullets lodged in her side, to early widowhood and professional challenges, hers is a story of true resilience that can inspire us all to persevere and prosper. Join us at the beautiful Woman’s Club of Palo Alto for a delicious lunch, wine and riveting conversation, all in support of Carb DM’s programs providing supportive communities that improve the quality of life and health of people living with type 1 diabetes.

You won’t want to miss this opportunity to hear Representative Speier, in conversation with Laura Zimmerman, former newscaster at KTVU Channel 2. Included with your ticket is a copy of Undaunted, ready for signing.
