The Daniel K. Inouye Institute Fund, a program of the Hawaii Community Foundation, and the University of Hawaii announced Friday that the Library of Congress will host the distinguished lecture series.

“Highlighting the importance Dan Inouye placed on bipartisanship and moral courage, the first annual lecture, in a series of five, will address shared values in U.S. foreign policy,” says a press release.

Inouye, who died in 2012, served Hawaii in the U.S. Senate for decades.
