Congresswoman Katie Hill

Fmr. Congresswoman (D-CA 25th District)

Katie Hill was elected to Congress from California’s 25th Congressional District in 2018 as one of the youngest members of the historic freshman class that flipped the House. She was elected by her colleagues to be the Freshman Co-Representative to Leadership, served as the Vice Chair for the House Oversight and Reform Committee and on the powerful House Armed Services Committee. 

The daughter of a registered nurse and police officer, before serving in Congress Katie worked as Executive Director of PATH (People Assisting The Homeless), the largest homeless services organization in California. Under Katie’s leadership, in just four years PATH helped more than 7,000 chronically homeless individuals, veterans, and families make it off the streets into permanent housing. During her time in office, Katie continued to prioritize the issue of housing, as Co-Chair of the New Democratic Housing Task Force. 

Hill resigned from Congress in 2019 after a coordinated cyber-attack by Republican political operatives and right-wing media outlets was launched against her. Now, Katie is using her platform to support young women running for office, advocate for legislation to address cyber exploitation and other issues that disproportionately affect young women, and transform our political system into one that ensures true equality through equal representation.
