It was a true pleasure to be able to honor the work that Sacramento Food Bank and Family Services, Francis House, Bill Maynard, Rabbi David Azena, and Ron Javor do in our community to alleviate hunger and homelessness.
As our nation celebrates Hunger & Homelessness Awareness Week in November, we recognized individuals and organizations in the Sacramento region that are making a difference in our fight to end hunger and homelessness. Assembymember McCarty joined with Congresswoman Matsui and Senator Pan and community partners, Sacramento Hunger Coalition, the Sacramento Housing Alliance, and Slow Food Sacramento to host the Inaugural Grantland Johnson Community Awards, which took place on November 18th at Mulvaney's B&L. This wonderful even honored two organizations and three remarkable individuals who have accomplished exceptional deeds or pushed major change to address structural deficiencies on behalf of those who suffer for lack of food and shelter in our community:
Amazing work done by Front Street Animal Shelter by giving over 200 microchips and a new home to many animals.
Happy 75th Birthday to a City Treasure!
Bill requires all local elected officials to complete sexual harassment prevention training, closing existing loophole
(SACRAMENTO, CA) – Today, Assemblymembers Kevin McCarty (D-Sacramento) and Lorena Gonzalez (D-San Diego) announced legislation which would require all local elected officials to take the same sexual harassment prevention training required of city staff and state legislative bodies.
"Elected officials have a higher bar as supervisors to understand the laws that protect their employees and to ensure their workplaces are free from sexual harassment," noted Assemblywoman Gonzalez, Chair of the Assembly Select Committee on Women in the Workplace, "This starts with guaranteeing they receive the necessary training to keep workers safe."
Happy Veterans Day to all the brave who served. Honored to help celebrate their courage and thank those who continue to serve our nation.
