About Congressman Kennedy:
Currently serving his third term, Congressman Joe Kennedy III has emerged as a powerful voice for social and economic justice.
Deeply committed to the working communities he represents, Joe has built a strong legislative agenda around his signature economic issues. He has championed affordable health care, vocational education, a livable minimum wage, and American manufacturing. As a member of the influential House Energy & Commerce Committee, Joe has established critical leadership on issues that directly impact families and economic growth in Massachusetts, from mental health and addiction to medical research and rising energy costs.
Nationally, Joe has emerged as a powerful voice for health care and civil rights. His opposition to President Trump’s healthcare plan garnered national attention, as have his efforts to reform this country’s badly broken mental health system. In Congress, he is a leading voice for LGBTQ equality, voting rights and immigration reform.
Known for his commitment to working across the aisle, Joe has built an impressive legislative record in a polarized Washington, spearheading bipartisan efforts to support our domestic manufacturing industry, protect consumer voices online, increase the affordability of hearing aids, and defend access to legal assistance for low and middle-income families.
