Progressive champion Elizabeth Warren has represented Massachusetts since 2013, when she unseated Republican incumbent Scott Brown.
Before entering the Senate, Warren was an outspoken advocate and professor focused on consumer protection and bankruptcy law. She was a leading advocate pushing for the creation of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau.
One of the most prominent progressive legislators in America, she has turned her focus to pressing for a “wealth tax,” developing more effective banking regulation and reducing corporate corruption.
Warren serves on the Senate Committee on Banking, Housing and Urban Affairs, the Committee on Finance, the Committee on Armed Services and the Special Committee on Ageing. She also Chairs the Subcommittee on Economic Policy and the Subcommittee on Fiscal Responsibility and Growth.
Warren is a staunch champion of J Street’s policies, priorities and values.
In May 2021, she was an original cosponsor of S.Res.225, which pushed for a ceasefire between the Israelis and Palestinians and called for diplomatic efforts to resolve the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Warren also signed the bicameral Merkley-Stansbury letter which pushed back against proposed evictions in the West Bank communities of Masafer Yatta.
Senator Warren was an original cosponsor of S.434, the Iran Diplomacy Act of 2021, which advocated for a reentry to President Obama's Iran deal, which verifiably blocked Iran's path to nuclear weapons. She also supported the original deal in 2015.
