Congresswoman Maxine Waters may be making headlines today for her stance against President Donald Trump’s agenda, but she has a long history of advocacy and legislative achievements. For nearly forty years, Congresswoman Waters has been at the forefront of effective policy-making, beginning first in the California State Assembly where she rose to Democratic Caucus Chair until her election to the US House in 1990. As Ranking Member of the House Financial Services Committee, Congresswoman Waters is leading the fight to protect the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act. Further, she has championed legislation to protect homeowners, consumers, and even worked across the aisle to pass such important measures as the National Flood Insurance Program and reauthorization of the Export-Import Bank. Congresswoman Waters is a former chair of the Congressional Black Caucus, co-founder of the LA–based Black Women’s Forum, and former board member of Essence and Ms. magazines.
