The Women’s Caucus mourns the loss of Senator Jenny Oropeza

Nov 15, 2010

The Legislative Women’s Caucus mourns the passing of Jenny Oropeza; she was a champion for women’s issues and she will be deeply missed.  Her advocacy on behalf of women and children set her apart from so many legislators because she fought for families with such passion.  Her vigilance in ensuring equal rights for women and girls in athletics should be noted, she consistently carried legislation to make sure women and girls had equal opportunity to play sports.  Jenny’s efforts to make sure all women receive appropriate mammograms have probably saved many lives.  She was an integral part of our Caucus and her absence will be felt.

Our hearts go out to her family.
