Congresswoman Katie Porter represents California’s 45th Congressional District. Before running for Congress, Rep. Porter worked as a consumer protection attorney, and she spent nearly twenty years fighting powerful interests and Wall Street banks on behalf of consumers and families. In 2012, then California Attorney General Kamala Harris appointed Rep. Porter to be California’s watchdog against the banks. She has also been a tenured professor at the University of California Irvine Law School.
Rep. Porter supports a two-state solution, creating a safe and secure Israeli state living alongside a Palestinian state. She views the two-state solution as the clearest path to an enduring peace, offering both Israel and the Palestinian people lasting stability. In Congress, Rep. Porter was an early supporter of House Resolution 326, reaffirming Congress’s support for a two-state solution.
