Congresswoman's Calendar

Congresswoman Porter is committed to being open and transparent about who she meets with both in Washington, D.C. and in Orange County, California. Each month, she’ll publish a list of groups, associations and individuals she met with so that the public can know how she’s spending her time working for the people of the 45th District of California. Note that Rep. Porter will host many other public events – including town halls or listening sessions – which will not appear on this list.

If you would like to set up a meeting with Congresswoman Porter or her staff, please contact us here.
