Susie Lee was raised by a working class family in Ohio. After moving to Las Vegas in 1993, she began working with after-school programs, and later became the President of Communities In Schools of Nevada in 2010. She was the founding director of a homeless crisis intervention center and a founding member of a women’s investment group.
In office, Lee helped pass H.R. 1, the For the People Act, which is the most comprehensive anti-corruption and democracy reform bill to pass the House since Watergate. The bill is being denied a fair vote by Mitch McConnell and the special interests who control the U.S. Senate. H.R. 1 would take on dark money and foreign interference in our elections, fix our broken campaign finance system, tighten ethics laws, crack down on lobbyists, limit partisan gerrymandering used to manipulate elections, and expand and protect the right to vote. Lee represents a swing district in Nevada and faces a tough re-election fight in 2020.
