For Sacramento City School Board
Re-Elect For Sacramento City School Board
Meet Leticia Garcia
Leticia Garcia is the proud mom of twin girls, an advocate for public education, and an active member in her community.
She grew up in Santa Ana, CA and is the daughter of a construction worker and a farmworker. The eldest of eight children, Leticia is the first in her family to go to college. Her parents instilled in her the importance of education and giving back to her community.
Leticia’s calling to help improve people’s lives and communities led her to a career in public policy—with a focus on public education. Her passion for public education is very personal as obtaining a college education stopped generational poverty in her family. Today, she sees her daughters thriving in school and have access to great opportunities—she wants to make sure all Sacramento kids have these opportunities.
As a parent, Leticia is involved in her daughters’ education and supporting their extracurricular activities as a troop leader for Girl Scouts, and a team parent for softball. She works professionally as an education advocate to fight for increased state funding for public schools and to help craft policies that improve student success.
