News from Representative Sánchez


Dear Friend,

I know that over the past several weeks we have seen dizzying headlines on issues that affect us in deeply personal ways, and have created fear and confusion in our community. As Congress considers issues that could have a profound impact on the lives of our family and neighbors, from immigration policies to the Affordable Care Act, it is more important than ever for me to hear directly from you.  

I will soon be announcing details for town hall style forums for me to connect with you over the next couple of months. I appreciate every opportunity to listen to your priorities and share with you how I am fighting for our community. Please stay tuned for forthcoming details on my website, social media, and next month’s newsletter about these events.

No matter what turn the news might take in any given day, I always stand ready to assist you with any issue you may have with a federal agency. In addition to serving as your voice in Congress, I am here to be your advocate on federal casework issues with programs like Medicare, Social Security, and veterans’ benefits. Please do not ever hesitate to contact me if I can be of assistance to you.

Member of Congress

Update from Washington

Last week, I delivered the Weekly Democratic Address on the importance of immigration to our national identity. I responded to the President’s recent executive orders which have spread fear through immigrant and minority communities throughout our country. You can view the address and a transcript of remarks at the link below. 

Highlight from the District

Congressional Art Competition

Every year I have the honor of showcasing the amazing artistic talents of the youth in our community through the Congressional Art Competition. The competition is held in every congressional district across our nation, and is open to all high school students in each district. Students interested in participating must submit a work of art that will be reviewed by a panel of local artists. Students may create a piece especially for the competition or they can submit a previously created work of art. There is no specific theme for this year’s art competition. Student artists can submit original and creative art work as long as their work complies with the rules and regulations established by the Congressional Art Competition.

The first-place winning student in our district will receive an all-expense paid trip to Washington, D.C. to attend the national 2017 Congressional Art Competition ceremony with winning students from across the country. The student will also receive a scholarship and have his or her work on display at the U.S. Capitol for one year. Several additional scholarships will be awarded to students with outstanding art submissions. 

Students interested in submitting their artwork must be a resident of the 38th District of California. Artwork must be finished and submitted to my district office in Norwalk by Friday, March 24th no later than 5:00 PM. Additional details regarding the district reception in April will be provided to students who submit artwork and their art teachers. Please do not hesitate to contact me through my district office if you have any further questions.
