ABOUT JASMIN

Jasmin has lived and raised her family in Riverside County for almost 30 years calling home the cities of Moreno Valley and San Jacinto.  Driven by a sense of service and her five children, Jasmin immediately began volunteering at their local schools and became a San Jacinto Head Start Policy Council Representative and was selected by her peers to Chair the Riverside County Head Start Policy Council.

Aside from her volunteer work at schools, Jasmin started a path to public service as a member of the Student Government Senate at Mt. San Jacinto College advocating on behalf of nearly 20,000 students. Jasmin was a leader in the Measure AA campaign, which was approved by nearly 60% of voters, that issued $295 million in facilities bonds to benefit the local community college. Measure AA provided funds to expand job training classes, educational services for veterans, and increased opportunities for students to transfer to four-year colleges. A portion of the funds was designated to ensure accessibility for students with disabilities; upgrade classrooms, laboratories, electrical systems, and technology infrastructure; and acquire, build, and repair classrooms and facilities. 

Jasmin also volunteered as an advocate on the Crisis Hotline and in-person for the Center Against Sexual Assault (CASA). Serving day and night shifts, she provided advocacy and accompaniment for victims of sexual assault, child abuse, human trafficking, and domestic violence (CASA recently changed the ma to REACH). Jasmin has been supporting survivors in-person during forensic examinations, interviews with authorities and court hearings. She provides emotional support and crisis intervention, information and support referrals, advocacy, and documentation.

In 2014, Jasmin was selected to fill an appointment on the Board of the San Jacinto Unified School District. She ran for the position in 2018 and won. 

Since 2015, Jasmin has served on the Board of Directors of NAMI (National Alliance on Mental Illness) Mt. San Jacinto, and is a strong mental health advocate. Jasmin has provided leadership in advocacy, education and support throughout the Hemet, San Jacinto Valley, Mid County Region in Riverside County and the Inland Empire.

As a School Board Member, Jasmin participates on the Equity Task Force, Foster Young Parent Advisory, Native American Parent Advisory, Latin American Parent Advisory, SPEED Parent Advisory, and African American Advisory and District English Learner Advisory Committee.

Jasmin is also a member of the DACA task force of Mt. San Jacinto College and Liaison to providing immigration service to the community. Additionally, she has volunteered for over three years at the Riverside County Annual Unsheltered Homeless Point-in-time Count allowing her to understand the causes and the urgent need to address homelessness in the region. 

As Assemblymember, Jasmin wants to focus on improving the education of the kids of the 60th District, provide more open spaces for families, advocate to improve mental health services and address the issues of crime and domestic abuse in the communities of the district.
