Amanda Renteria is the daughter of former farmworkers in the Central Valley who went on to attend Stanford and Harvard. For nearly two decades, she has devoted her career to public service. She has served in a variety of public sector roles; a High School teacher in her hometown, a budget analyst in one of California’s largest cities, the first Latina Chief of Staff in the history of the United States Senate, National Political Director for a Presidential Campaign and most recently, Chief of Operations for the California Department of Justice.
The core of Amanda’s policy platform is called the 21st Century California Bill of Rights. It describes the policies we need to establish to ensure the safety, inclusion, and prosperity of every Californian. Framing these issues as fundamental rights is an important step. It also sets a broader, long-term standard our government will achieve under her leadership as governor.
