Special Tribute

In Memory of former Los Angeles County Supervisor and Board Chair Gloria Molina

Earlier this year Los Angeles lost a political pioneer, a champion for the underrepresented and a trailblazing Latina. The Honorable Gloria Molina dedicated her life to public service becoming the first Latina elected as California State Assemblymember, Los Angeles City Councilmember, and Los Angeles County Supervisor.

Her legacy and impact in Los Angeles, the state and the nation will live on through the policy changes she secured and communities she served. Gloria joined the CCF Board of Directors in 2016, becoming the chair of the Board in 2021. As chair, Gloria sought to reimagine our resources to ensure that all Angelenos have access. Her unwavering commitment to strengthen communities throughout Los Angeles County will be felt for generations to come.

Gloria brought her characteristic unbreakable commitment and tenacious advocacy of smart policy to the CCF board.

Her keen intellect, passion, work ethic and strong sense of right made her a forceful advocate and a force of nature. As we celebrate the incredible life and career of Gloria, we can honor her by continuing to fight for equity in our vulnerable communities.

CCF will always be incredibly grateful to the Honorable Gloria Molina for her service and commitment to our communities. We will continue to honor her dedication and public service.
