Toni G. Atkins Senate President Pro Tempore Celebration at the LGBT Community Center
We invite you to a celebration of the historic election of Toni G. Atkins as the California Senate President Pro Tempore! Please join us to toast one of our community’s greatest champions as she assumes the State Senate’s top leadership position.
Set to be sworn in on March 21st , California Senate President Pro Tem-elect Atkins will be the first women to hold the position, the first LGBT person, the first person from San Diego, and one of few in California history to have been elected to both Speaker of the Assembly and, following that, to Senate President Pro Tempore – meaning she would have led both California legislative bodies during her career.
Hors d'oeuvres, refreshments, and good cheer will be provided.
