Sandra’s career has always been devoted to the public interest, whether representing victims of human trafficking and domestic violence or advocating for progressive legislation. Sandra came to national attention in 2012 when she testified before members of Congress regarding comprehensive insurance coverage for birth control. She then took on Rush Limbaugh and other conservative commentators when they launched sexists attacks against her, never giving up and instead using this platform as a powerful tool for advancing progressive causes. Sandra then served as a surrogate for President Obama reelection and helped more than a dozen Democrats running in competitive U.S. House and Senate races. Now, Sandra is a candidate for the California State Senate District 26. She and her husband, Adam, live in West Hollywood, CA with their dog, Mr. President.
