Interview with Assemblymember Luz Rivas

Interview with Assemblymember Luz Rivas

Today we welcome California Assemblymember Luz Rivas of the 39th District encompassing the northeastern San Fernando Valley, running up into the San Gabriel Mountains. We discuss her background in engineering, going to MIT, and how that led to her STEM non-profit (https://www.diygirls.org) and her entry into politics. We then segue into a detailed discussion of her budget asks, what some of her bills look like, including her work on housing, homelesness, school nurses, and remove the word “alien” from the California legal code, as well as her work as chair of the Natural Resources Committee.
