Office Hours with Sandra Fluke

Activist & Candidate for California Senate

About Sandra Fluke, Activist & Candidate for California Senate

Sandra’s career has always been devoted to the public interest, whether representing victims of human trafficking and domestic violence or advocating for social justice legislation. In February of 2012, she was unexpectedly attacked when she testified before members of Congress regarding the importance of comprehensive insurance coverage for reproductive health. As the media attention and the personal attacks grew, Sandra believed it was her responsibility to stand up to advance the policies she has always fought for.

While most known for her advocacy for affordable access to health care and other reproductive justice concerns, Sandra has fought for a myriad of progressive issues. She helped pass legislation ending discrimination against LGBTQ folks in family court. In 2010, funded by the Women Lawyers Association of Los Angeles, Sandra produced an informative film to help victims of domestic violence obtain restraining orders in LA courts and represented those victims at Neighborhood Legal Services of Los Angeles. For over two years, Sandra worked with a coalition to pass the California Domestic Worker Bill of Rights. At the Coalition to Abolish Slavery and Trafficking in Los Angeles, Sandra is a volunteer attorney representing victims of human trafficking. She has advocated for student loan debt relief, access to early childhood education and raising the minimum wage.

Nationally, Sandra is frequently recognized for her powerful address to the Democratic National Convention in 2012. She served as a surrogate for President Obama and campaigned for over a dozen Democrats in competitive U.S. House and Senate races. Now Sandra is running for the California State Senate.

Sandra graduated cum laude from Georgetown University Law Center as a Public Interest Law Scholar. In 2003, she received a B.S. from Cornell University. Sandra and her husband, Adam, live in West Hollywood with their dog, Mr. President.
