LA County made history last year with an all-women Board of Supervisors elected to lead the largest local legislative body in the nation. This is thanks in large part to trailblazers like Gloria Molina, who was the first Latina elected to the Board of Supervisors in 1991 and represented East Los Angeles for 23 years. She was known as a fiscal watchdog and was committed to effective government reforms, maintenance of the county's public healthcare delivery system, and quality of life issues - particularly for the one milion residents in the county’s unincorporated areas.

In 1982, she was the first Chicana elected to the California State Assembly, and in 1987, she was elected to the Los Angeles City Council. Molina will share her experiences from her storied career in politics and look ahead to the future of LA, from the nearly $35 billion budget, to reimagining public safety, the homeless crisis, and the pandemic fallout.
