Toni J. Gomez

Hey there, I'm Toni Gomez. I am currently a California Senate Fellow for Senator Carol Liu. I staff issues related to Local Governance and Finance, as well as the Senate Select Committee on Aging and Long Term Care.

In the past I've worked in Community College policy reform with the Campaign for College Opportunity. I've engaged, organized, and trained Millenials (my peers!) as a field director for the Roosevelt Institute Campus Network. I've also trained true rock stars in the progressive movement in public narrative building - using our stories to inspire others to action. I believe that our stories connect us, create hope, and build our capacity for local change. I have seen that true progress comes from each of us doing what we can, with what we have, right where we are.

In my free time you might find me swimming, or cooking while listening to NPR.

I hold a degree in Public Policy from Mills College, where I completed a thesis focused on Career Technical Education.

You are welcome (so welcome!) to contact me via email.
