National Hispanic Organization Recognizes Schiff's Record
WASHINGTON, DC - Congressman Adam Schiff (D-CA) received a 100% rating from the National Hispanic Leadership Agenda (NHLA) for his ongoing commitment in Congress to secure basic civil rights and provide a better quality of life for all Americans. NHLA is a non-partisan coalition of public policy and civil rights organizations that provide the Hispanic community with greater visibility and a stronger voice in our national affairs.
"I'm proud of my record on issues of importance to all Americans, and I will continue to fight to open the doors of higher education, provide access to affordable health care, and give all families the tools they need to succeed," said Schiff.
Congressman Schiff has introduced a "Kids First" agenda of initiatives to improve education, safety, and health care for our children. He is the co-founder of the Democratic Study Group on National Security and a member of both the House Judiciary and International Relations committees. He represents California's 29th Congressional District, which includes the communities of Alhambra, Altadena, Burbank, East Pasadena, East San Gabriel, Glendale, Monterey Park, Pasadena, San Gabriel, South Pasadena and Temple City.
