Leader Pelosi was asked by CNN to select a place that has special meaning to her for the interview, and she chose Trinity. The entire interview was filmed at Trinity — in Rose and Board Parlors, Main Hall, Notre Dame Chapel and Seymour Court — and thanks to Trinity’s great facilities team and the CNN production crew, the campus really shines!

Leader Pelosi is the first, and only, woman to be elected Speaker of the House – the highest elected public office ever held by a woman in the United States. The CNN program, β€œThe Axe Files,” profiles influential leaders, including Congressman John Lewis, Senator John McCain, Ambassador James Baker and California Governor Jerry Brown. David Axelrod was the chief strategist for Barack Obama’s presidential campaigns and then served as senior advisor to the President.

While the interview focuses mostly on policy issues and her journey from Baltimore to California to the role of Speaker of the House, Leader Pelosi also reflects on her Trinity experience and talk about Trinity today.

Watch the CNN interview – and check out these photos of the filming on campus and CNN setting up.
