Today marked the end of my 10th Annual Mother's Day Donation Drive benefiting Sacramento Food Bank & Family Services. Thanks to everyone who helped us gather diapers, clothes, toys, strollers and more to help families. A special thank you to the many donation sites and the Yuba College Associate Degree Nursing Program for leading the parent education stations! Also thank you to our top helpers: #MsBecky & Coloma Center Tiny Tots Preschool and CASA de ESPAÑOL.

Hi! My name is Jasmine, and I had the great opportunity to shadow Asm. McCarty yesterday for California Youth Connection (CYC)'s "Foster Youth Shadow Day."

I believe that I can draw from my experience as a former foster care youth to create #FosterPower and #FosterStability for the young people behind me. All young people need stable, love-filled lives, and I am grateful to learn more about the legislative process that can help make that a reality.

My name is Jasmine, and I'm taking over Asm. McCarty's social media for the day!

I am shadowing for the day as part of the California Youth Connection (CYC)'s "Foster Youth Job Shadow Day." I am participating in the program as a former foster youth because I believe I can use my voice for policy, legislative and practice change in the foster care system.

Great morning @ historic inaugural #SanJoaquin Morning Express Train to Sacramento.

The #SB1 #CalSTA award funds for @AmtrakSanJoaquins & ACE Rail is a game changer for commuter rail passengers from Sacramento and the Central Valley.
