California Women Lead Celebrates Los Angeles City Council President Nury Martinez

Council President Martinez Blazing New Path for Women Leaders


Statement from California Women Lead President, Mona Pasquil Rogers:

“Today, we celebrate Los Angeles Council member Nury Martinez as she becomes the first Latina city council president. Nury is a bold leader advancing meaningful issues, from increasing paid parental leave to combatting human trafficking. This is an important moment in California’s history, because milestones like this inspire and energize more women to blaze their own path and seek leadership positions. This vote from her peers is well deserved and we know Council President Martinez will continue to move the City of Los Angeles forward and build a stronger California.”
