About:

AG Becerra was recently endorsed by the San Francisco Chronicle (editorial) which notes that “few positions are more important to Californians in this year’s election than the job of attorney general” and wrote: “Becerra has not hesitated to defend California’s values against the Trump administration. He’s brought 32 lawsuits against the administration, on issues ranging from the travel ban on people from Muslim-majority countries to the attempted rollback of fracking regulations on public lands.”

And he will not stop there. Every day he is defending our civil rights, increasing public safety, protecting our planet and access to affordable care, advancing criminal justice reform, and so much more.

Xavier Becerra is the 33rd Attorney General of California, and the first Latino to hold the office in state history. He has a long track record in public service, representing the people of California. Previously, he served in the U.S. House of Representatives on behalf of California’s 34th congressional district since 1993.

Becerra has defended California’s values against the Trump administration. He’s brought lawsuits against the administration to defend the Affordable Care Act (ACA), and the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA). He’s led the fight against the discriminatory Muslim travel ban, the EPA’s illegal delay of air quality standards, and the ill-conceived wasteful plan to build a wall along the California border.

Becerra has announced multi-million dollar settlements on behalf of Californians harmed by bad over-the counter medications, wire fraud scams, and compromised credit card information. He has secured tens of millions of dollars in debt relief for students who were taken advantage of by predatory for-profit colleges. And he prevented Big Oil giant Valero from taking over a petroleum distributor which could have led to higher gas prices at the pump.

The first in his family to attend a four-year college, earning his Bachelor of Arts in Economics from Stanford University in 1980 and received his Juris Doctorate from Stanford Law School in 1984. Following law school, he worked for a legal services agency representing the mentally ill. In 1987, he was appointed as a California Deputy Attorney General. And in 1990, he was elected to the California State Assembly. Becerra is married to Perinatologist Dr. Carolina Reyes and they are the proud parents of three daughters: Clarisa, Olivia and Natalia.

Born in Sacramento, Becerra is the son of immigrants — a construction and clerical worker — who taught him the value of working hard to earn a chance to get ahead. For more information, please visit https://xavierbecerra.com/about/ .
