Our Guests: Congresswoman Frederica Wilson

 
Throughout her life, Congresswoman Frederica Wilson has been a voice for the voiceless.
 
As an elementary school principal, she stood up for the health of her students by opposing the construction of an environmentally dangerous waste facility being built across the street from her school. She won the fight, forcing the Miami-Dade County Commission to close the plant.
As a community leader, she stood up for the fair treatment of Haitian women refugees who were incarcerated with no privacy in a local detention center. In 1984, she tirelessly and successfully lobbied Congress for their release. To this day, she remains close friends with all of them.
Her lifelong desire for standing up for our most vulnerable populations is rooted in her faith, family, and passion for public service.

Once upon a time, a little girl named Clayre was born with a condition that would prohibit her from eating any dairy products. Her mother, who loved to bake, was determined to adapt all of her favorite recipes and make them dairy-free so that Clayre would be able to enjoy desserts with the rest of her family and friends. Most people who tried these dairy-free goodies could not even tell that they did not contain dairy.
 
Fourteen years later, Clarabelle's Cupcakes was created to share these
delicious treats with everyone!
