Hakeem Jeffries


Rep. Jeffries (NY-08) has fought for social and economic justice throughout his four terms in Congress. He was previously Whip of the Congressional Black Caucus, and co-chair of the Democratic Policy and Communications Committee which formulated the For the People agenda.

As Chairman of the House Democratic Caucus, Jeffries was instrumental in ensuring H.R. 1, the For the People Act, was the first piece of legislation brought to the House floor in the 116th Congress. This bill is the most comprehensive anti-corruption and democracy reform bill to pass the House since Watergate. It 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.

Reformer at Risk?

No Corporate PAC?
