KlobucharU.S. Senator Amy Klobuchar, a 2020 presidential candidate, will close the University of Colorado Boulder’s Conference on World Affairs. The Molly Ivins Memorial Plenary, a mainstay of the CWA, has been subtitled “A Conversation with Senator Amy Klobuchar” and will take place on Saturday, April 13, at 4 p.m. in Macky Auditorium on the CU Boulder campus.

The talk will be a moderated discussion with Tom Zeiler, professor of history and director of the program in international affairs at the University of Colorado Boulder. Their discussion will cover a wide range of pressing issues facing communities like Boulder across the country. Sen. Klobuchar will also receive questions from the audience. Audience members wishing to submit a question should download the free CWA app prior to the event.

Amy Klobuchar is the senior U.S. Senator from Minnesota - the first woman elected to the United States Senate in Minnesota’s history. Prior to her time in the U.S. Senate, Klobuchar served as the Hennepin County Attorney. Since she arrived in the Senate, Senator Klobuchar has built a reputation for putting partisanship and politics aside in favor of strengthening our economy and helping middle-class families. A recent Vanderbilt University study ranked Senator Klobuchar as the most effective Democratic senator in the last Congress. She is running for the Democratic nomination for president of the United States in the 2020 election. Klobuchar is a graduate of Yale University and the University of Chicago Law School.
