Virtual Online Meeting-Assemblymember Shirley N. Weber, Ph.D.

July 30, 2020 at 12:00 pm to 1:00 pm

Assemblymember Shirley N. Weber, Ph.D. was elected in November of 2012 to represent California’s 79th Assembly District, which includes the cities of Bonita, Chula Vista, La Mesa, Lemon Grove, National City and San Diego.

She has lived in the 79th Assembly District for over 30 years. She was a faculty member and chair of the Department of Africana Studies at San Diego State University for over four decades. Deeply committed to education, she served for eight years as school board member and president at San Diego City Schools. As an Assemblymember, Weber has translated her commitment to education and social justice into her ambitious legislative agenda, including bills on K-12 education reform, civil rights, public safety, food insecurity, protections for person with disabilities, and voting rights. In August 2019, Weber introduced and passed a historical piece of legislation, AB 392, known as the California Act to Save Lives, which determines when police could use deadly force. This law sets the highest standards in the nation for California. It will be on November’s ballot to repeal the 1996 BAN on Affirmative Action.

Weber will speak about police reform, economic inequality and racism.
