Sen. María Elena Durazo Joins Education & Workforce Development Council

Center for Education & Workforce Development

November 8, 2019

The Honorable Sen. María Elena Durazo (SD 24) joined the Chamber's Education & Workforce Development Council Friday morning to discuss her vision of education in the state. Sen. Durazo presented her thoughts on a multitude of critical issues concerning Californians, including the need for stronger workforce development, a clearer path for justice-involved youth as they integrate into society, the comprehensive needs of workers from reliable public transit to child care and more. As a key leader in the labor movement, especially among farmworkers, Sen. Durazo shed light on the issue of workers who remain in poverty, 55 percent of whom are Latino, and many of whom have college degrees but no path to a stable job. As the vice president of the California Latino Caucus, she proudly noted that California has 28 Latino legislators, the most there has ever been, whose top priorities include education reform for students and families of color. SEE THE PHOTOS.
