This week‚ I addressed the attendees of Boys & Girls State at Sacramento State University. It was a valuable opportunity to participate in this important program focused on education and civic engagement. During my speech‚ I had the privilege of sharing my personal journey attending Girls State at Sonoma State many years ago‚ what I took away from the experience that continues to impact me today‚ and my work as a California State Assemblywoman. The question and answer session that followed was a dynamic exchange of ideas‚ demonstrating their strong commitment to civic participation and emerging leadership qualities.
I was impressed by the genuine interest and thoughtful questions posed by the Boys & Girls State attendees. Their active involvement and genuine desire to make a positive impact in their communities reaffirmed the importance of fostering a culture of civic responsibility among our youth. Education and civic engagement are vital pillars that empower individuals to actively participate in shaping our society. Boys & Girls State provides a powerful platform for young leaders to gain a comprehensive understanding of government and develop the skills necessary to effect positive change. It was a privilege for me to contribute to their educational journey and be part of their exploration of democratic principles and values. Learn more about Boys & Girls State here.

|In the District: Tahoe|
Yesterday‚ my staff joined Anthony Cupaiuolo‚ the Executive Director of Tahoe Backcountry Alliance‚ on a tour of various public access points along and near CA-89.
During the tour‚ Cupaiuolo shared valuable insights about the commendable efforts undertaken by Tahoe Backcountry Alliance to improve public land accessibility in the Tahoe area. The challenges posed by the heavy snowfall last winter highlighted the difficulties in accessing roads. Nevertheless‚ the dedicated team at Tahoe Backcountry Alliance is actively collaborating with other agencies to find effective solutions that enhance these circumstances for both visitors and residents. This is particularly crucial both during the busy summer months and the equally demanding winter season‚ which see significant snow accumulation on roadways.
Thank you to Anthony for providing an exceptional tour of the area. Additionally‚ our team was delighted by an unexpected visit from the local wildlife!
