Dr. Yadira Caraveo is a freshman Member of Congress representing Adams and Weld Counties. She was previously a practicing pediatrician and state legislator.
The daughter of an immigrant construction worker, Caraveo ran for Congress to cut through the noise and deliver results for working people. During her time in the state legislature, she worked to lower drug prices, combat climate change, and protect a woman’s right to choose.
In conversations with J Street, Caraveo made clear her strong support for Israeli security, Palestinian self-determination and her opposition to actions that could push peace further out of reach. She backs a diplomatic solution to the Iran nuclear crisis that would block its path to a bomb and avoid a potentially catastrophic war of choice.
