Reflections of a Trailblazer: SBCAN’s Tribute to Senator Hannah-Beth Jackson
November 13 @ 11:00 am - 2:00 pm$100
Santa Barbara County Action Network will celebrate and honor Senator Hannah-Beth Jackson’s prolific career in the state legislature during a community brunch on Sunday, November 13, 2022 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at El Paseo Mexican Restaurant, 10 El Paseo, in Santa Barbara. We hope you will support our important work by sponsoring or attending “Reflections of a Trailblazer: SBCAN’s Tribute to Senator Hannah-Beth Jackson.” Throughout her time in office, Senator Jackson fought for equality and women’s rights. She wrote bills that expanded maternity and paternity leave, established one of the strongest equal pay laws in the nation, and required gender diversity on corporate boards in California. She authored a bill that expanded voter rights by allowing 16- and 17-year-olds to pre-register to vote; she supported environmental justice and natural resource protections, and much more. Her impact was recognized by Huffington Post when they named her one of 11 women “blazing new trails in American politics,” and the New York Times called her the “State Senator shifting California’s workplace culture.” This event will honor Senator Jackson’s commitment to serving our community and celebrate her many achievements. The event will also help SBCAN to raise the funds we need to keep doing our part to carry this type of work forward.
Tickets are $100 each and include brunch from El Paseo. Sliding scale tickets are available, please email [email protected]
