Garcia Gets Perfect Score from Equality California

Friday, April 26, 2019

As excerpted from Uken Report:

In its 2018 Legislative Scorecard, Equality California awarded Assemblyman Eduardo Garcia 100 percent. 

“For me it is simple,” Garcia told Uken Report about his perfect score. “I was elected to represent the residents of our 56th California State Assembly District. That means all of our residents.  I am very mindful that the policies I introduce and support are both equitable and inclusive.  For me, there is no room for discrimination, and I am proud to help advance legislation that will ensure a more just California for all.” 

The organization passed historic legislation to ensure transgender youth in the foster care system have access to the life-saving, gender-affirming healthcare they need; it made critical investments in combating California’s youth homelessness crisis; and it helped guarantee that law enforcement officers have the tools and training they need to serve and protect the LGBTQ community, according to Zbur.
