Bio

In 1992, Congresswoman Lucille Roybal-Allard became the first Mexican-American woman elected to Congress. As a Member of the U.S. House of Representatives, the Congresswoman has worked tirelessly to create jobs, improve health services, and create stronger, better educational opportunities for her constituents in California's 40th Congressional District. She also ranks as one of the House's foremost supporters of immigration reform, a strong homeland security system, labor unions, veterans, and the rights of women and children.

Congresswoman Roybal-Allard is the first Latina to serve on the House Appropriations Committee, and the first Latina to serve as a chair or ranking member on a House Appropriations Subcommittee. As the ranking Democrat on the House Homeland Security Appropriations Subcommittee, the Congresswoman fights to ensure our homeland security personnel have the resources they need, and she advocates for bipartisan comprehensive immigration reform that treats immigrants humanely. From her position on the House Appropriations Committee, the Congresswoman has secured millions of dollars to create jobs on much-needed local construction and transportation projects, and at organizations throughout her district. She has been at the forefront of the fight to improve the quality and affordability of health services, and has led legislative efforts to protect the health of mothers and babies. She has been equally successful in obtaining federal dollars for local education and labor projects.

In addition to the Homeland Security Subcommittee, Congresswoman Roybal-Allard serves on the Labor, Health and Human Services and Education Subcommittee. Furthermore, she is a House Democratic Senior Whip, the founder and co-chair of the Congressional Women's Working Group on Immigration Reform, a founding co-chair of the Congressional Caucus on Maternity Care, and a vice chair of the Congressional Task Force on Seniors. Congresswoman Roybal-Allard's accomplishments include- Creating Jobs for the 40th Congressional District and Greater Los Angeles Increasing the Fairness of Our Immigration System and Protecting Our Homeland Fighting for a Healthier District Strengthening Our Schools and Workforce.

The Congresswoman has received many honors, including- - The U.S. Hispanic Chamber of Commerce's President's Award - The National Association of Community Health Centers' Distinguished Community Health Defender Award - The National Hispana Leadership Institute's Legislative Award - The American Public Health Association's Public Health Legislator of the Year Award - The National Hispanic Media Coalition's Impact Award - The March of Dimes Foundation Public Affairs Leadership Award - Mothers Against Drunk Driving's Congressional Excellence Award - The National Council on Alcoholism and Drug Dependence's Humanitarian Award - The Hispanic Dental Association's National Leader Award - The American Psychiatric Association's Platinum Award - The Eugene A.
