California laws regarding public safety officers' use of force have not been revised since 1872.
I spent two years working with community activists, religious leaders and civil rights advocates on seeing a 147-year-old law revised.
AB 392 - which elevates California’s deadly force law from when officers think it’s “reasonable” to only when “necessary” - was just passed by both houses of the state legislature and is awaiting Gov. Newsom's signature.

I helped write an op-ed on behalf of Stephon Clark's father-in-law.
I walked 12 miles through the halls of the State Capitol and personally spoke with 10 members of the State Assembly - except my current Assembly member (and current opponent), who refused a meeting.
It took two years, but the legislation got passed and presented to the governor for approval.
I'm proud to have been part of this advocacy. I know how hard people throughout the state worked to get this passed.
If elected as the Assembly member for the 68th District, I won't duck meetings with my constituents. And I'll keep working hard to keep our residents safe.
