educational and economic opportunities,

vulnerable seniors, empower people living with disabilities and improve conditions for women
in California’s prisons.

efforts to invest in clean technology. She is proud that her work on environmental protection
has been recognized by the Sierra Club and the League of Conservation Voters.

require California’s pension funds to divest of billions of dollars in investments linked to oil and
defense companies in Iran.

City of Mountain View where she successfully implemented local tobacco control legislation,
created new green energy initiatives and worked to recruit many of California's most successful businesses. As a County Commissioner, she worked to reform the County's care of foster and
at-risk youth and to improve conditions for youth in the correctional system.
