The lecture is titled "Paul Wellstone: The Life of a Passionate Progressive," which also is the title of Lofy's new biography of the late Minnesota senator.
Lofy is a senior trainer and writer for Wellstone Action, a national center for training and leadership development for the progressive movement. The center was founded in January 2003, three months after Wellstone died in a plane crash while campaigning for a third term in the Senate.
Lofy worked for Wellstone for six years as an organizer, communications specialist and travel aide. In 2001, after working briefly on Wellstone's campaign, Lofy came to Princeton, where he earned an MPA degree from the Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs in 2003.
The lecture is sponsored by the Wilson School.
