Ana Maria Garcia, President
Welcome visitors, allies, advocates and learners to the website of the Los Angeles County Commission for Women (“LACCW”).
I am Ana Maria Garcia, proud daughter, sister, aunt, godmother, lawyer, and advocate, honored to serve as the President of this amazing body of women leaders and eager to partner to lift issues affecting women and girls in our County. This Commission is comprised of 15 members, appointed by the Board of Supervisors and dedicated to advancing gender equity for all communities and Departments of Los Angeles County.
Our Commission meets monthly and supports countless efforts on behalf of the Board of Supervisors and our county residents. Our committees and working groups focus on issues of health, education, eliminating violence against women and girls, public relations/social media and policy and legislation are vigilant about LACCW mission and goals. Every Commissioner is a warrior for gender justice and works to improve the quality of life for our residents.
Please plan to join us at our Annual Woman of the Year Luncheon on March 11, 2019 where we celebrate the success and contributions of phenomenal women throughout the County. This event raises funds to support Resilience Scholarships to affirm and empower young women working to achieve their educational goals. This inspirational event welcomes volunteers and sponsors. Please contact our wonderful staff – Cesar Hernandez, Roy Sinclair or Shawna Kuhns at (213) 974-1455 for more information.
