Representative Barbara Comstock is often applauded for being a strong voice throughout our region. What should not go overlooked though is Rep. Comstock’s strong voice beyond our region as a vocal advocate for human rights around the world.
She is a member of the Tom Lantos Human Rights Commission, previously chaired by Representative Frank Wolf. Through this commission, Comstock is a strong advocate for internationally-recognized human rights norms. Her legislative record is also strong on this issue. She’s voted for legislation to provide emergency relief to genocide victims in the Middle East, supported grant programs to protect faith-based community centers across the country, and backed legislation to support religious freedom and Human Rights around the world. Comstock’s voice abroad is one that we can be proud of here at home.
