"Our founders were successful disruptors of...the status quo," the Democratic House minority leader said in her prepared remarks. “Being called a disruptor in my view is a very high compliment. You here at Berkeley are already disruptors in many ways.”

Pelosi, who hails from the northern California region where she gave her speech, recalled Berkeley's history of activism — then told graduates to make some history of their own.
