“The November election was an awakening for me. I thought about what kind of country do I want my child to live in,” Wicks said. “California has the unique opportunity to put into law bold progressive public policies.”

Wicks said as an assembly member, she would focus on continuing to work on “issues that impact women and families,” including paid leave and affordable child care. Wicks added as a former community college student, she is a “big believer in expanding access to education and ensuring college affordability and access.”
