Rep. Maxine Waters was born on August 15, 1938, in Kinloch, Missouri. In her years of public service, Rep. Waters has built a reputation for tackling tough and even controversial issues.

She was elected to the U.S. House of Representatives in 1991. In 1992, as Los Angeles was rocked by the verdict in Rodney King’s beating case, she founded Community Build, the city’s grassroots rebuilding project. In recent years, she has been a vocal opponent of the previous president.

Rep. Waters is also a member and former chair of the Congressional Black Caucus.
