In this last Tuesday, there was a private event in New York to discuss humanitarian issues. Among those present were Bono, actor Richard Gere and Minority Leader U.S. Camera, Nancy Pelosi. "No one struggled more than Nancy Pelosi since she started working here 25 years," said Bono, co-founder of ONE. "Millions of people around the world owe their lives to Nancy and the bipartisan coalition that fought to contain the AIDS epidemic not only in America but in the poorest parts of the planet." Calling it the leadership of "indispensable," Bono said that Pelosi "reached the corridor in this fight and worked with Presidents from left and right." Ricard Gere, wearing jeans and blazer, happily posed for a photo with Bono and Pelosi, the Republican and Republican Barbara Lee Barney Frank, who were also present.
