A proven progressive leader in Congress
Rep. Raúl Grijalva (AZ-03) is a long-time education advocate and the chairman emeritus of the Congressional Progressive Caucus. Before being sworn into the U.S. House of Representatives in 2003, Grijalva served on the school board of the Tucson Unified School District for 12 years. As Chairman of the Natural Resources Committee, Grijalva plays a key role in protecting public lands and ensuring access to clean air and water. He is a long-standing, senior member of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus.
A consistent voice against corporate money in politics
Rep. Grijalva is a champion of campaign finance reform; he does not take corporate PAC money and was an original co-sponsor of H.R. 1, the For the People Act. Grijalva has been a consistent critic of the Citizens United decision, lambasting our current campaign finance system as one that “has filed the American people” and allowed a “powerful class of wealthy contributors and corporations” to have “even greater influence on elections and public policy.”
Reformer at Risk?
