Later that evening, the 28th Annual Awards and Recognition Event honored retired Congressman Peter DeFazio (D-OR-4). Throughout his 36 years in Congress, Peter DeFazio exemplified an unparalleled commitment to helping Flight Attendants while demonstrating tough oversight on safety. His leadership as Chair of the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee was instrumental in shaping policies that prioritize our welfare, including penalties for disruptive passengers and sexual assault, evacuation standards, keeping knives off planes, the 10-hour minimum Flight Attendant rest requirement, and the three passages of the Payroll Support Program.


L to R: National President Julie Hedrick, Peter DeFazio; Government Affairs Representatives Allie Malis (DCA) and Lori Glattly (DCA).

We thank Congressman DeFazio for traveling to our convention for the award. Julie Hedrick, APFA National President, along with Government Affairs Representatives Lori Glattly (DCA) and Allie Malis (DCA), were able to personally address and thank Congressman DeFazio for his commitment to aviation and his tireless advocacy on our behalf.
