The Educators’ Choice for Attorney General
Attorney General Xavier Becerra has a long-standing commitment to and passion for students, educators and families from across California. A staunch advocate for working families with decades of experiences representing Californians, Xavier Becerra became California Attorney General in January 2017 to defend the rights of the nearly 40 million people statewide.
Becerra’s work as chief law enforcement officer follows more than two decades of service to the people of Los Angeles in the U.S. House of Representatives, where he was also elected to serve in leadership, chairing the Congressional Hispanic Caucus. Becerra was the first Latino to serve on the powerful Ways and Means Committee, fighting for a fairer tax code and for fairer trade laws and working to protect Social Security and Medicare.
Becerra believes in protecting the rights of educators and all workers to come together to negotiate proper learning and working conditions. He also believes California’s charter schools must be held to the same accountability and transparency standards as traditional public schools.
