Congresswoman Katherine Clark proudly serves the Fifth District of Massachusetts. She was first elected in a special election in December of 2013. Katherine's career in public service is driven by her commitment to helping children and families succeed. She is a vocal advocate for ending wage discrimination, protecting women's health care, access to affordable, high-quality child care, paid family leave, safer schools, and other reforms to address the challenges women and families face. She believes that Congress must work to end the glaring disconnect between the needs of families at home and priorities in Washington.

In Congress, she brings her experience as a state senator, state representative, general counsel for the Massachusetts Office of Child Care Services, and policy chief for the state attorney general.

Katherine represents a diverse district comprised of 24 cities and towns that stretch from the coastal communities of Revere and Winthrop through the economic engine of MetroWest. As of January 3, 2019, she joined the House leadership team as Vice Chair of the Democratic Caucus, making her the sixth highest ranking Democrat in Congress. Additionally, she serves as a member of the Steering and Policy Committee within the Caucus.

Katherine serves on the U.S. House Committee on Appropriations and three subcommittees within Appropriations- Labor, Health and Human Services, Education, and Related Agencies; Legislative Branch; and Transportation, and Housing and Urban Development, and Related Agencies.

Katherine is a member of several caucuses in Congress, including the Congressional Progressive Caucus and the Women's Caucus.

Katherine, her husband Rodney and their three boys Addison, Jared and Nathaniel live in Melrose.
