Raúl Grijalva

  • Endorsed
  • 7th District, arizona

Progressive champion Raúl Grijalva has represented Tucson, Phoenix, Yuma and Nogales since his election in 2002. He is the dean of Arizona’s congressional delegation.

Grijalva began his political involvement as a member of Partido Nacional de La Raza Unida, a left-wing Chicano party that saw some success in the American Southwest. He was first elected to local office in 1974 as a member of the Tucson Unified School District.

A former co-chair of the Congressional Progressive Caucus, Grijalva is consistently rated as one of the most progressive members of the House. He is a strong supporter of environmental protection, immigration reform and economic equality. He is also a staunch advocate for diplomacy-first foreign policy and was an outspoken supporter of President Obama's Iran deal, which verifiably blocked Iran's path to nuclear weapons.

In Congress, Rep. Grijalva has been a consistent supporter of J Street’s priorities.

He signed the bicameral Merkley-Stansbury letter which pushed back against proposed evictions in the West Bank communities of Masafer Yatta. Grijalva also signed the 2022 Pocan-Schakowsky letter which vigorously opposed the proposed construction of the E-1 settlement (which was subsequently postponed).
