As you know, we recently made significant headway towards protecting our state’s immigrant families.

A lot has happened during the year since last November – terrifying and depressing, heartening and emboldening.

Our bill to bring transparency to California’s backlog of untested rape evidence kits was just passed by the Legislature and is on its way to the Governor’s desk for his signature.

Since I arrived at the State Assembly almost 3 years ago, we have been fighting every day for solutions to California’s intense housing crisis.
