Game Changer: Kyrsten Sinema

Kyrsten Sinema


Kyrsten Sinema isn’t like most politicians.  She gets it. She knows what is like to go to bed hungry and do without basic needs. As a child, her father lost his job, her family became homeless and they lived for a time in an abandoned gas station without electricity or running water. That didn’t stop Kyrsten. She worked hard, earned a full academic scholarship to college and graduated early with honors. She was raised in a conservative Mormon family, but would become the first openly bisexual member of Congress. Her willingness to tackle tough situations head on has shaped her into a powerful advocate for Arizona women and their families.


U.S. House of Representatives – Arizona’s 9th Congressional District – Incumbent. Arizona is a battleground state and this race will be highly competitive.


Prior to serving in Congress, Kyrsten served in both chambers of the Arizona legislature. She was elected to the Arizona House of Representatives in 2005, and the Arizona Senate in 2011.

From passing a law that protects breast-feeding mothers from being charged with indecent exposure, to opposing laws that would allow certain employers to deny coverage for maternity benefits, to fighting for paid family leave, Kyrsten has always been a true advocate for fairness and equal treatment.

Kyrsten was a social worker from 1995 to 2002.

She is involved with many organizations such as Community Outreach and Advocacy for Refugees, Girls for a Change, The Jirani Project,  the YWCA, and the Arizona Death Penalty Forum.
