Representative Katie Porter, representative of California’s 45th congressional district, joined The Nation for an urgent conversation about the critical policies needed to help American workers in the wake of Covid-19. Watch the recording below.
As a member of the House Financial Services Committee, she’s asked tough questions of bank CEOs and administration officials to hold them accountable to the American people. She has also been a key supporter of legislation to reduce the influence of dark money in politics and restore ethics to Washington, and has been fighting, in this fraught moment, for federal money to reopen schools safely. She’s a vocal supporter of both Medicare for All and the Green New Deal and has spent nearly two decades taking on the special interests that dominate American politics and drown out the voices of working families.
