The collection is comprised of legislative research, introduced and passed bills, speeches, manuscripts, awards, and visual media documenting her years of service to the counties of Sonoma and Marin. Lynn Woolsey championed causes related to the environment, women, children, diversity, and peace. She served on the Committee on Education and the Workforce; the Committee on Science, Space and Technology; and the Foreign Affairs Committee. She chaired the Workforce Protection Subcommittee, co-chaired the Congressional Progressive Caucus and served on many other caucuses and informal committees. Her active opposition to the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan may be her greatest legacy.
