A special dedication ceremony was held for former Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords and the late San Mateo Congressman Leo Ryan in Washington.

Ryan was shot and killed 39 years ago in the Jonestown Massacre in Guyana. Ryan and his then legal aide, Congresswoman Jackie Speier, went to investigate the People's Temple Cult under Jim Jones.

Speier joined House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi to dedicate the "Gabrielle Giffords-Leo J. Ryan Cloakroom."

Ryan's daughter, Patricia Ryan, was also at the ceremony.
