Maura Healey is currently in her second term as Massachusetts attorney general, continuing a career spent fighting for justice and equal rights by serving as the “People’s Lawyer.” During her time in office, Healey has focused on confronting the opioid epidemic, reducing gun violence, enforcing civil rights, protecting consumers, addressing the climate crisis, and championing access to health care and reproductive freedom.
