As your State Assemblymember for the 51st Assembly District, the health and wellbeing of our community is of the most importance to me. That is why my team and I put together this list of resources, a one-stop shop of the most pressing issues related to COVID-19. It is extensive and has a lot of valuable information. During these pressing times, we have seen our community come together to help those in need, from the health heroes on the frontlines, to essential workers who risk their health everyday to ensure the public has the necessary items at home, to those following stay at home orders, flatting the curve, and to the many volunteers, we are in this together. Please call our office for any questions you may have at 213.483.5151 Monday-Friday 9am-5pm or email Assemblymember.Carrillo@asm.ca.gov

In her second year in office, California State Assemblywoman Wendy Carrillo (D-Los Angeles) built off the momentum she established during her first year in the Legislature. Assemblywoman Carrillo had eight bills signed into law, honored distinguished community members on the Assembly Floor, hosted numerous events in Assembly District 51 and represented the state of California on a trip to El Salvador with Governor Gavin Newsom and First Partner Jennifer Siebel Newsom. She also aided in the passage of several significant pieces of legislation related to affordable housing, police use of force, protections for immigrants and public health, among many others. Most of all, 2019 was a year of building community and legislative partners to improve the quality of life of the residents of Assembly District 51 and the 40 million that call California home.
