With the New Year comes new goals and fresh outlooks. In the Legislature, January brings new legislation and continued progress on issues from previous years. As we go into 2020, I remain committed to improving the lives of people in Southeast L.A. and throughout California.
This month, I’m shining a spotlight on people and organizations in our community that work to provide new beginnings for others. These groups serve people who often feel marginalized and forgotten by society. Despite efforts to change their lives, many struggle to overcome obstacles that hold them back.
Although the past shapes who we are, we are so much more than our previous experiences. These groups support people through their journey of redefining themselves. They give people real hope for a brighter future; one with opportunities and prosperity.
On that note, I want to wish you all a Happy New Year filled with success and hope for the future.
