My heart mourns in the wake of the recent tragedies.

Dear Community,

I am reaching out with a heavy heart. I know I entered 2023 with hope and joy to have the pandemic behind us and move into a new year. And, only a few weeks into the year, we are mourning the loss of community members across the State of California due to gun violence. My sincerest condolences to the families in Monterey Park, Half Moon Bay, and East Oakland who are trying to make sense of the mass shootings that ripped through their community this week.

Celebrating Legislative Wins and Budget Victories in Assembly District 18

Dear Friend,

It has been an honor to be your elected representative in Sacramento, completing my first year in the State Legislature. Many of you were able to join our virtual town hall in September, which highlighted some of the legislative and budget wins that I fought hard for on behalf of our local community. It was important for me to spend this first year uplifting our collective challenges and tackling them head-on, authoring over thirty bills. 

Celebrating Women’s Cultural, Economic, and Educational Advancements in Women's History Month

Dear Friend,

Happy Women's History Month! It is my hope that we are all able to take some time out of our schedules to honor the women in our lives. We know that women have served as true advocates of progressive change for many generations. Women across the world have fought for the right to vote and to serve in the same capacity as their male counterparts as lawyers, healthcare professionals, elected officials and more. This work has helped advance many of these vocations forward, and we want to celebrate this achievement!

Getting things done in the new year!
