Assemblymember Sabrina Cervantes to Serve as Vice-Chair of the CA Latino Legislative Caucus
SACRAMENTO—The California Latino Legislative Caucus (CLLC) announced today that Assemblymember Sabrina Cervantes (D-Riverside) has been elected to fill the caucus Vice-Chair vacancy for the 2021-2022 legislative session. Comprised of 30 State Legislators (9 Senators and 21 Assemblymembers) including a record high 17 Latinas, the CLLC serves as a forum to develop avenues to empower the Latino community throughout California.
“I am so excited that the California Latino Legislative Caucus has elected Assemblymember Sabrina Cervantes to serve as our Vice-Chair. As a woman, a millennial, and a member of the LGBTQ+ community, she is an example of the vibrant diversity within our Latino community. I look forward to working with Assemblymember Cervantes to uplift and magnify the voices of Latino working families at our State Capitol,” said Latino Caucus Chairwoman, State Senator María Elena Durazo (D-Los Angeles). “I also want to thank Assemblymember Robert Rivas for his service as our Vice-Chair. He has been a strong partner and I am grateful that we could work together to grow the caucus and further the collective interest of Latinos in California.”
“I am honored and humbled to have the support of my colleagues in the Latino Caucus to serve as our Vice-Chair,” said Assemblymember Sabrina Cervantes (D-Riverside). “I look forward to working with our Chair, Senator María Elena Durazo, and the other members of the Latino Caucus to address the critical issues affecting the nearly 16 million Latinos who are the backbone of California’s economy, the fifth largest in the world. I also want to thank Assemblymember Robert Rivas for his work as Vice-Chair, especially in fighting for the Latinos in our agricultural industry who empower California to feed the United States and the world.”
Assemblymember Sabrina Cervantes was elected in 2016 to serve the communities of Corona, Eastvale, Jurupa Valley, Norco, and Riverside. Assemblymember Cervantes is Chair of the Assembly Jobs Committee and the Assembly Select Committee on Veteran Employment and Education. She has fought to create well-paying jobs for working families; supported California’s small businesses as they recover from the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic; and helped our veterans fulfill their dreams of higher education after they come home from serving in the Armed Forces.
