Dina Titus

NV-1 (D)
A University of Nevada political science professor for nearly three decades (during which she also served as a State Senator and Senate Minority Leader), Congressmember Titus is now in her fourth term in the U.S. House of Representatives. She currently serves on the Transportation and Infrastructure Committee and the Foreign Affairs Committee. She also serves on the Senior Whip Team and is a member of the House Democracy Partnership along with numerous issue caucuses. Congressmember Titus is an advocate for quality education and renewable energy development, speaking up for Nevada’s children, women, seniors, veterans, immigrants, and persons with disabilities.
How does Dina align with Project 100's values?
  • Economic Opportunity: Representative Titus supports equal pay. On Equal Pay Day in 2016, she issued a statement that called for a vote on the Paycheck Fairness Act, legislation that would provide protections to workers and close loopholes that currently make it harder for women to earn equal pay for equal work.
  • Equal Treatment Under the Law: According to Ozy.com, advocates of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program "praise her office’s legal services department and strong stance against deportation. Her office hasn’t just helped with visas for the Hispanic community; her district, with Ethiopian cab drivers and Armenian churches, plus emerging Chinese and Korean populations, is the most diverse in the state."
  • Healthy People & Communities: Representative Titus gets a 100% rating from Planned Parenthood based on her Congressional voting record. And she's sponsored a bill to allow the VA to recommend pot as an alternative to pain pills.
