On Monday I was greatly moved by the opportunity to honor Martin Luther King Jr.'s memory by being a part of the 30th annual Kingdom Day Parade in Los Angeles. We walked in the image of Dr. King and in spirit of the civil rights movement.

Today, January 19th, is a holiday recognizing the birthday of Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. Even though he was murdered nearly half a century ago, his memory and his legacy will always live on.

Thank you Senator Barbara Boxer for your service

Senator Barbara Boxer has served the people of California with distinction for several decades. Her career in public service began on the Marin County Board of Supervisors, she went on to the House of Representatives in 1983, and then the U.S. Senate in 1993. Senator Boxer announced her retirement last week, which will cap four terms in the Senate. I just wanted to take a moment to thank her for her many years of dedicated service to the people of California.

Selma the Movie, and what it can teach us today

I have seen the "Selma" movie twice already, and plan to see it again this week. I keep learning something new every time I see it! The movie is about Martin Luther King Jr. and the civil rights movement in Selma, Alabama, which led to the passage of the Voting Rights Act of 1965.

What a year. It has been a remarkable time for change in LA County, starting with the 22nd annual Empowerment Congress Summit in January, to watching my son Sebastian sworn in as the Assemblymember for the 54th District. There have been some low moments too, with the ongoing struggle to support and defend our right to vote, and the loss of too many of our sons like Trayvon Martin and Michael Brown in Ferguson.
