Dear Friends,

As the California legislature prepares for a new session, my team and I are sharing our work in the 2023 legislative session and reviewing the joys and challenges of the past year.

Breast Cancer and Health Resources

Dear Friends,

This October, communities across the country stand united in raising awareness for breast cancer. Accounting for 1 in 3 cancer cases every year, breast cancer is the most common cancer for women, with the majority found in women 50 years or older. The Center for Disease Control recommends that women over the age of 40 speak with their health care provider about when and how often they should have a screening completed.

Rooted in Unity: Celebrating Latinx Heritage Month

As the First Black Latina elected to the California State Assembly, I can attest first-hand that representation matters. That is why I am glad to be celebrating this year’s Latinx Heritage Month.

This is precisely why I prioritize uplifting the voices of ethnic, racial, and linguistic minorities in the Assembly and the greater State of California.
