Leadership and experience to help workers earn more.

Connie Leyva grew up and raised her family in the Inland Empire. She knows people here have always had to work harder and are struggling to get a bigger piece of the economic pie. Connie started working at her local Alpha Beta grocery market, put herself through college, was elected to represent her co-workers as president of their union, and then became the first female president of the California Labor Federation—representing more than 2.1 million workers.

As our state Senator, Connie has never forgotten the importance of creating economic fairness and opportunities for working people. That’s why Connie Leyva led on legislation to raise the minimum wage, fought for universal health care coverage, and worked to make the first year of community college free.
