Team DeFazio


Peter DeFazio is fighting for us and taking our fight to the Trump administration, greedy corporations, and special interests at every opportunity.

Holding Corporations Accountable

As Chair of the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee, DeFazio is holding Boeing accountable for their devastating decisions that put profits above people's lives.

Taking On Climate Change Now
