Al Green

House - Incumbent

Congressman Al Green has represented Texas’s Ninth Congressional District since 2005. A veteran civil rights advocate, Rep. Green spent over two decades as the Justice of the Peace in Harris County, TX, and ten years as the president of the Houston NAACP. The Congressman sits on the Committee on Homeland Security and the Financial Services Committee, on which he is Chair of the Oversight and Investigations Subcommittee.

A JStreetPAC endorsee since 2016, Rep. Green has been a longtime champion of the two-state solution and a pro-diplomacy approach to foreign policy. In the last Congress, he supported the vast majority of J Street’s legislative priorities. He also cosponsored H.Res. 326, which put Congress on the record reaffirming support for the two-state solution and opposing annexation and settlement expansion.
