Caucuses/Working Groups:

Problem Solvers CaucusFounded in 2017, the Problem Solvers Caucus became an independent member-driven group in Congress, comprised of representatives from across the country – equally divided between Democrats and Republicans – committed to finding common ground on many of the key issues facing the nation. the Caucus’  aim is to create a durable bloc that champions ideas that appeal to a broad spectrum of the American people. It is a group united in the idea that there are commonsense solutions to many of the country's toughest challenges. Chrissy is committed to the idea that when we work together as Americans we can successfully break through the gridlock of today’s politics and find bipartisan solutions.

Paid Family Leave Working Group: Chrissy is leading the charge on paid family leave in Congress. She co-chairs the House bipartisan Paid Family Leave Working Group, which is a first-of-its-kind group that is examining federal policy solutions to provide more paid leave to more Americans. Chrissy believes strong families build a strong economy and that no parent should have to choose between bonding with their child or going into debt.

Bipartisan Climate Solutions Caucus: Chrissy helped relaunch the Bipartisan Climate Solutions Caucus in the 118th congress after its dissolution in 2018. She jumped at the opportunity to advance bipartisan solutions on issues such as permitting reform, energy affordability, emissions reductions, and more. Chrissy firmly believes protecting the environment and growing the economy are not mutually exclusive and will look to do both by working on the Bipartisan Climate Solutions Caucus. 

New Democrat Coalition: Since 2019, Chrissy has been part of this group of forward-thinking Democrats in the House of Representatives who are committed to pro-economic growth, pro-innovation, and fiscally responsible policies. For the 118th Congress, she is the chair of the Economic Growth and Fiscal Responsibility Task Force, she was the whip for the 117th Congress, and was the freshman whip in the 116th Congress. 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.

Women in STEM Caucus: As an Air Force veteran and former engineer, Chrissy understands the challenges that women and other underrepresented groups face in many technical fields. 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. Chrissy is joined by a bipartisan group of over 20 of her colleagues who share her commitment to creating a STEM workforce which reflects the full diversity of the United States.

UXO/Demining CaucusAs co-chair of the UXO/Demining Caucus, Chrissy fiercely advocates to support mine removal programs that protect international communities and serve U.S. security, economic, and political interests abroad. Since the Russian invasion of Ukraine, Chrissy has helped bring attention to the contamination of Ukrainian territory and opposed transferring weapons that would lead to higher levels of unexploded ordnance. U.S. UXO and mine removal programs have been implemented in more than 100 countries since 1993. Current U.S. operations span more than 40 countries, including Afghanistan, Angola, Armenia, Cambodia, Colombia, Iraq, Kosovo, Laos, Sri Lanka, and Syria.
Servicewomen and Women Veterans Congressional Caucus: In Chrissy’s first few months in Congress, she founded the first Congressional caucus to ever focus on issues facing women both during and following their military service. Chrissy’s own experience in the Air Force informed her decision to form this bipartisan forum to address the issues facing the women who have served our nation in uniform. Chrissy, the Chair and Founder of the Servicewomen and Women Veterans Congressional Caucus, is joined by over 50 of her colleagues in this important work.

Stakeholder Capitalism Caucus: As an entrepreneur, Chrissy is a firm believer that corporations being ecologically conscious and socially responsible are not at odds with being profitable—that's why she partnered with Rep. Dean Phillips (MN-03) to found and co-chair the Stakeholder Capitalism Caucus.
