Caucuses:

She founded and serves as co-chair of the Women in STEM Caucus to help remove these obstacles for the benefit of both women and the country.

New Democrat Coalition: Chrissy serves as the Whip to this group of forward-thinking Democrats in the House of Representatives who are committed to pro-economic growth, pro-innovation, and fiscally responsible policies. She is on two task forces: Health Care and Future of Work. New Democrats are a solutions oriented coalition seeking to bridge the gap between left and right by challenging outmoded partisan approaches to governing. New Democrats believe the challenges ahead are too great for Members of Congress to refuse to cooperate purely out of partisanship.

For Country Caucus: As a veteran in Congress, Chrissy was a Vice Chair of the For Country Caucus during her first term. This caucus is a non-partisan group of military veterans serving in Congress and dedicated to working together in a nonpartisan way to create a more productive government. Together, they share a vision of a Congress that is strategic in purpose, focused on action, and where elected officials put our country first. Find coverage of the caucus' creation here.

It is a group united in the idea that there are commonsense solutions to many of the country's toughest challenges.
