Meet Katie

Katie Porter is serving her second 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 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 is a national leader in consumer protection and has won big victories against financial institutions who cheat consumers both in Congress and before she was elected.

  • As an advocate, Katie has sought reforms that help families get a fair shake in our economy. She has been a key player in the fight against abusive credit card fees and, in 2010, helped pass important federal credit card protections for families. 

  • 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.

  • Katie refuses to take a dime from Corporate PACs and, in Congress, she will always stand up to the powerful special interests and leaders of both parties – starting with Donald Trump – to do what’s right for Orange County families.

  • As a Consumer Protection Attorney, Katie Porter has spent nearly twenty years fighting powerful interests and Wall Street banks on behalf of consumers and families. She’s a national leader in consumer protection and has won big victories against financial institutions who cheat consumers.

“In her short time in Congress, Katie has already distinguished herself through her work in the House Financial Service Committee, building on her lifelong commitment to protecting the American consumer. The people of the 45th Congressional District are fortunate to have such an effective champion to represent them.”

Stonewall Democrats

“While the House was passing historic nondiscrimination protections for LGBTQ Americans this month, the Trump-Pence Administration spent the last month attacking LGBTQ healthcare and trying to kick LGBTQ people out of homeless shelters. The choice for pro-equality voters couldn't be clearer. [Katie Porter] has been an invaluable partner in the fight for full, lived LGBTQ equality.”

Equality CA

“In 2018, we elected pro-choice champions in every corner of the country—from Des Moines to Orange County to Dallas—to fight back against the GOP’s extreme anti-choice ideology. We know the fight for reproductive freedom is going to be front and center in 2020 and partnering with our allies in the House is critical for ensuring the right to access to care is possible for women and families in all 50 states”


“ In order to make progress on climate in the next Congress, it is essential that we re-elect these first-term members who have made our environment and our future a top priority.”

League of Conservation Voters

“Newly elected Democratic congresswomen are already proving what a positive influence their leadership and fresh perspectives bring to Congress. They got to work on day one, supporting legislation that would end the Trump shutdown and re-open the federal government. They have become prominent voices in discussions around expanding affordable health care access, defending voting rights, protecting the environment and other policies that would move our country forward. EMILY’s List is fully committed to helping re-elect these impressive new members, whose victories in tight swing districts in 2018 helped us flip the House and elect a record number of women to Congress.”
