Congresswoman Louise Slaughter serving food

Throughout her career, Louise Slaughter was known as an ardent advocate for the region that she represented. She was incredibly visible in her community, evidenced by her showing up at parades, attending fundraisers, and even helping to serve a holiday meal for those in need. We’re not sure when and where this photo was taken (the joys of going through archives!), but the expression on Louise’s face makes it clear that she truly cared about the people she represented.
