Lauren Underwood


Focus On A Healthy Community

Lauren Underwood is the first woman, person of color and Millennial to represent Illinois’ 14th Congressional District. As a registered nurse, Underwood has always been focused on the health of her community and served as a Senior Advisor in the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services before coming to Congress. Now Underwood continues to focus efforts on empowering youth, broadening access to healthcare, and fighting to improve maternal health outcomes and end disparities.

Voting is Power

Underwood co-sponsored H.R.1, the For the People Act, and has continued to fight to reduce the role of money in politics and ensure that access to voting is fair and equitable. She wants to restore our democracy and guarantee free and fair elections. Underwood is also focused on holding public officials accountable, making sure that they work for their constituents and not for big corporations.

Better Together

During her time in office, Underwood has worked for better access to health care, resources for small businesses, and investment in public education. Her experience in improving healthcare institutionally, her dedication to addressing the concerns of her constituents, and her work to ensure a fair and equitable democracy, have shown Underwood to be an invaluable member of Congress. Underwood is a top target for Republicans this coming election, and it’s critical we work to keep her in office.
