U.S. House, IL-14
Lauren Underwood is currently serving Illinois’ 14th district in Congress. She is the first woman to represent our district. She is the youngest Black woman ever elected to Congress.
Lauren grew up in Naperville. She is a registered nurse and health policy expert, with hands-on experience in America’s healthcare industry, which she now carries with her to Washington.
In 2018, Lauren flipped this seat from red to blue in historic fashion, defeating a four-term Republican incumbent. She won every single county in our district, something an IL-14 Democrat has never achieved before. During her first term in Congress, Lauren has proven herself to be a hard worker and an effective leader for her community and helped create the first ever Black Maternal Health Caucus
