Congresswoman Kim Schrier represents Washington’s eighth Congressional District. Before being elected to Congress, Rep. Schrier was a pediatrician, and she is now the only female M.D. of any kind elected to Congress. Throughout her career, she worked with children and families to help them navigate the healthcare system.
In Rep. Schrier’s view, US aid in the region also bolsters conditions necessary to bring about a two-state solution. Additionally, she views the expansion of Israeli settlements in the West Bank and Jerusalem as complicating the prospects for peace, and as such, she opposes such activity. Schrier is also committed to pursuing ongoing diplomatic engagement with Iran to curb its nuclear ambitions. In Congress, Rep. Schrier has advocated for the US playing a central supporting role in peace negotiations. Rep. Schrier was one of the earliest cosponsors of House Resolution 326, reaffirming Congress’s support for a two-state solution.
