Bio

A fierce advocate for justice and families, Congresswoman Sydney Kamlager-Dove proudly represents California's vibrant, diverse 37th Congressional District in Los Angeles County. Congresswoman Kamlager-Dove is a member of the House Foreign Affairs Committee and serves as Vice Ranking Member of the House Natural Resources Committee. She is the Co-Chair of the Congressional Brazil Caucus, and a Whip and Outreach Co-Chair of the Democratic Women's Caucus. In Congress, Congresswoman Kamlager-Dove aspires to L.E.A.D. by prioritizing Land, Economic Justice, Art, and Democracy. Through her work on the House Foreign Affairs Committee, Congresswoman Kamlager-Dove was able to help secure the release of her constituent Eyvin Hernandez, a Los Angeles County Public Defender who was wrongfully detained in Venezuela for nearly two years. Additionally, she passed the GRATEFUL Act to ensure that locally-employed U.S. embassy staff-especially those from countries in the developing world-can immigrate to the U.S. as promised after an honorable career of service. Congresswoman Kamlager-Dove is also a fierce advocate for the African diaspora both in California's 37th District and around the world. She leveraged her role on the House Foreign Affairs Subcommittee on Africa to help establish the Congressional Black Caucus Institute's Global African Diaspora Initiative (GADI) and secure its special consultative status within the United Nations Economic & Social Council. Prior to her time in Congress, Congresswoman Kamlager-Dove spent her career advocating for communities and families. Upon graduation from the University of Southern California, she worked to advance job creation and public arts programs with Rebuild LA and the Los Angeles Festival, two nonprofits dedicated to uplifting communities in Los Angeles. In addition to her advocacy work, Congresswoman Kamlager-Dove brings to Congress nearly a decade of experience serving the people of Los Angeles in local office and the state legislature. In 2013, Congresswoman Kamlager-Dove was appointed to the Los Angeles County Commission on Children and Families, and in 2015, she was elected to the Los Angeles Community College Board. She successfully ran for California State Assembly in 2018 and California State Senate in 2021. She will always be a strong voice for justice and our most vulnerable community members as she continues her commitment to public service in the House of Representatives. She lives in the district with her husband, stepchildren, and rescue cats.
