This week the Annual Nonprofit of the Year Award luncheon was held at the Capitol and I had the pleasure of presenting Bright Futures for Youth with the Annual Nonprofit of the Year Award for the 1st Assembly District. Bright Futures for Youth offers year-round academic, social and emotional support to several hundred children and young adults every year in Nevada County. After the last two years especially, parents and children desperately need support and resources like those offered by Bright Futures for Youth. This organization has decades of experience supporting youth in their formative years, when they need it most. They are a true community asset. Here’s what Jennifer Singer, Executive Director of Bright Futures for Youth had to say about receiving the award:
|“We’re very proud of our accomplishments and being recognized by Assemblywoman Dahle for our multilayered, never-ending efforts to help youth in the area. Our program has changed and grown dramatically during the past two decades, because the needs are different and much greater than in the past. With the ongoing support of the community, including from leaders like Assemblywoman Dahle, we are helping children and young adults to succeed.”
From after-school programs and summer camps to access to health care, counseling and healthy meals, Bright Futures for Youth is connecting and developing relationships with youth. The 1st Assembly District and its constituents are fortunate to have this wonderful organization in our community. Learn more about Bright Futures for Youth at bffyouth.org.

AB 2640, “Zacky’s Bill” – I am proud to be a lead author on a bill that aims to help children with food allergies have a safer experience in school cafeterias. This bill has passed in the Assembly and moved on to the Senate.
AB 2337, Frontier Schools – I am pleased to share that my bill to define frontier schools, opening up more opportunities to procure funding for small, rural schools, has not only passed out of the Assembly, it has now passed out of the Senate Education Committee and moves on to the Senate Floor.
ACR 154, Recognizing Women in STEM – I am proud to be a co-author on ACR 154 which honors 100 years of women in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics during the month of June 2022. On a local level, Turtle Bay Exploration Park in Redding has a STEM Superheroes exhibition that highlights eight STEM professionals from the local community. Check it out here!

With the 1st Assembly District changing next year, I have received some inquiries regarding what the new district map looks like, what areas will stay the same, and which are changing. I’ve had a map created for you to easily view what the new district will look like (left). You can also visit the We Draw the Lines website to view the final maps for Congress, Senate, Assembly, and more. Click here to do so.
When you utilize the We Draw the Lines search tool, be aware of which box you have checked when searching the map as district lines are different for Congress, Senate, Assembly. etc.
Class of 2022… *YOU DID IT!* Congratulations! The last few years have looked different for all of us, but especially for students. Navigating life as a teen, reaching your academic goals, and living through a global pandemic and all that comes with it is a major feat.
As you celebrate your graduates this month, I am celebrating with you. Congratulations on a job well done!
