Jared Huffman

  • Endorsed
  • 2nd District, california

J Street champion Jared Huffman has represented the Northern California coast since 2013. Huffman is the only elected member of the U.S. House who openly describes himself as religiously unaffiliated and a secular humanist.

Huffman received his Bachelor of Arts in political science magna cum laude from University of California, Santa Barbara, where he was a three-time All-American volleyball player. He was a member of the USA Volleyball Team in 1987 when the team was ranked No. 1 in the world and had recently won the World Championship. Huffman later became a consumer attorney specializing in public interest cases. Among his court victories was a case on behalf of the National Organization for Women, which required all California State University campuses to comply with Title IX. Huffman then served in the CA State Assembly from 2006 to 2012, where he chaired the Water, Parks & Wildlife Committee and the Environmental Caucus.

In the House, Huffman serves on the Natural Resources Committee and the Transportation and Infrastructure Committee. He is a member of many ideological caucuses, including the Congressional Progressive Caucus and the Congressional Anti-Semitism Caucus.

Congressman Huffman is a champion of J Street’s priorities on the Hill. He supported nearly all of J Street’s advocacy vehicles in the last Congress, and was an original co-sponsor of H.R. 5344, the Two State Solution Act — a milestone piece of legislation which presented various mechanisms for bringing about an eventual peace.
