Katie Porter is serving her first term in Congress, representing California's 45th Congressional District. Once a UC Irvine law professor and nationally-renowned consumer advocate who held Wall Street banks accountable for ripping off California consumers and homeowners during the financial crisis. Katie refuses to take a dime from Corporate PACs or lobbyists, and in Congress has been standing up to powerful special interests and leaders of both parties – starting with Donald Trump – to do what’s right for Orange County families.
Katie is Professor of Law at the University of California Irvine where she teaches consumer law.
Katie is a middle-class mother of three and consumer advocate who has spent decades taking on the big banks that hurt middle-class families – and winning.

Katie’s biggest joy is being a mom to her three children. They live in Irvine, where she is a long-time leader in her sons’ cub scout pack.
