Liu honored by foundation
State Sen. Carol Liu (D-La Cañada Flintridge) was given a “Trailblazer Award” May 4 by the Women’s Foundation of California.
The honor was in recognition of Liu’s support of the nonprofit Women’s Policy Institute, which teaches women activists and organizations about public policy and the legislative process.
The Women’s Foundation is sponsoring Liu’s SB 1084, which would create a two-year, bipartisan task force aimed at reducing poverty among Californians. The bill is pending in the Senate Appropriations Committee.
