In 2022, we hope to see many women achieving new heights. One woman, Justice Patricia Guerrero was elevated to the California Supreme Court on March 28, 2022. She is California’s first Latina state judge. Many are excited to experience her intelligence, integrity, experience, and perspective in the courtroom.

Justice Guerrero was raised in the Imperial Valley by her immigrant parents. She has made remarks about her pride in her heritage, strengthening her and empowering her. Nominated by Governor Gavin Newsom, she was approved by a unanimous vote following. Justice Guerrero has experience in the courtroom serving as a prosecutor, partner, and judge, and has many people in California excited for her approval. We wish her all the best in her new position, and are excited to see her work as a supreme judge!
