For the third year in a row, Assemblymember Bonnie Lowenthal has selected 30 young women under the age of 30 in her district to honor with a special community award and this year, the list includes leaders, volunteers and community advocates from every corner of Long Beach, San Pedro and Signal Hill.
“In each of these young women we see what makes California great,” said Lowenthal, who represents the 70th Assembly District and is Chair of the Legislative Women’s Caucus. “They’re our future leaders and innovators that will blaze new trails and build stronger communities for us all.”
The women were all chosen from nominations that came directly from the community and were presented with their awards at a ceremony held last week. Many of those recognized this year were nominated by previous year’s honorees. The full list is below. Congrats to all the honorees!
