    De Leon Announces District Appointment to Los Angeles Redistricting Commission

    Councilman Kevin de Leon Wednesday named Sonja Francine Diaz, a civil rights attorney in Los Angeles, as the Council District 14 representative on the city’s redistricting commission.

    “Sonja has long been an advocate for equity in Los Angeles, using her voice to protect the civil rights of countless Angelenos,” de Leon said. “As we redraw the invisible lines that unite our diverse districts into a cohesive city, Sonja’s leadership and deep knowledge of the Voting Rights Act will be critical to ensuring more equal and reflective representation, not just for CD 14 but for the entire city of L.A.”
