“It is just very, very important to me that women have equality in this country.”
— Cathy Unger
My first political act was handing out leaflets for Governor Edmund G. Brown while a student at University of California Berkeley. Inspired by my parents’ example of activism in community organizations, I have dedicated my career to service, working with Zev Yaroslavsky and Gray Davis among others, and championing equal rights for all Californians. My legacy will support women’s reproductive rights.
