Joseph Kennedy, III

United States House of Representatives

Congressman Joseph Kennedy III has dedicated his career to social and economic justice, fighting for the basic needs of every American family and a political system that is inclusive, representative, and fair. The U.S. Representative for Massachusetts’s 4th congressional district from 2013-2021, he ran for office to tackle the systemic inequities – from health care and housing to climate and education – that have left countless American families left behind. A former Peace Corps member, legal aid volunteer, and assistant district attorney, he has worked tirelessly for the people most at risk, most marginalized, and most in need. He founded the Groundwork Project, a non-profit dedicated to supporting local community organizing efforts. He serves on numerous non-profit boards, including the Woodwell Climate Research Center, Robert F. Kennedy Human Rights, the Edward M. Kennedy Institute for the United States Senate and is a special advisor to the Poor Peoples Campaign.
