Interview. Katie Porter Runs for Congress in California.
Katie Porter is a longtime Cubmaster (her daughter is now a Cub Scout too!) consumer financial protection attorney, law professor and author of three books. But that’s not all. Katie Porter is running for Congress in California’s 45th Congressional District.
When we asked Katie about what the impact will be with so many women running for political office, she had this to say:
“This is an Incredibly important moment. I think it’s a time to not only to transform the composition of Congress, but the progress that we make on policy issues.”
“My Mentor Elizabeth Warren said, ‘Electing more women is not something we do for women, it’s something we do for America.’”
Katie continued, “We’ve seen it over and over again; That women lead in different ways. In ways that add to the productivity of Congress. It’s not just women coming into leadership but all voters supporting women in leadership.”
