Dear Neighbors,

On March 26, the Senate Judiciary Committee passed a bill I'm proud to have authored, and which I hope will end a centuries-long history of racial discrimination based on hairstyles. We accomplish this by celebrating the uniqueness of Black hair, and by challenging, some commonly held myths about what constitutes professionalism in the workplace.

Our fellow Californians are hurting. The world has been transfixed by the death and destruction that has destroyed large parts of Northern and Southern California.

Dear Neighbors,

Early last year, Sen. Ricardo Lara and I took stock of how many families in our communities were suffering lifelong harm because of unfair criminal and juvenile justice laws passed in misguided efforts to "get-tough" on crime. 

We pledged to reform the overreach of California's failed tough-on-crime era and return common sense to the criminal justice system after an era of mass incarceration by introducing a package of #EquityAndJustice measures.

Dear Neighbors,

As you may have heard, much of my agenda is part of the second year of an #EquityAndJustice package jointly authored with Sen. Ricardo Lara. Collectively, these measures emphasize needed changes to how California's juvenile and criminal justice systems treat youth and young adults.
