A small group of SCG members recently gathered for a reception featuring special guest Senator Kevin de León, California Senate President pro Tempore. As you know, Senator de León will hold this important leadership position for a few years to come, so this was a great opportunity to build relationships and exchange ideas that will hopefully lead to collaborative action in the future.

Senator de León is the first Latino elected President pro Tempore of the California State Senate in more than 130 years. Since his election to the State Assembly in 2006 and the State Senate in 2010, he has taken on challenging issues that position California as a national leader, such as access to higher education, climate change, retirement security, and immigrants’ rights.

The child of immigrants himself, de León was the first in his family to graduate from high school, later earning a degree with Honors from Pitzer College. He is a Rodel Fellow at the Aspen Institute and a guest lecturer at USC.
