Nominate Your California Hero

Tuesday, September 4, 2018

Dear Friends,

A constituent brought me an idea four years ago to honor local heroes for their selfless acts. This idea later became Senate Concurrent Resolution 97 which named every September as “California Heroes Month.” California now celebrates the unsung heroes in our communities every September.

Who do you know that has gone above and beyond, even with little acts, to make our neighborhood a better place?

Please nominate them to be recognized this California Heroes Month, by filling out the nomination form here: Deadline for nominations is September 30. As I am terming out at the end of the year, I am looking forward to hosting my last Heroes Month ceremony before I leave the Legislature.

Nominees will be invited to a special awards ceremony to thank them for their community service. Click here to view photos from last year’s California Heroes Month Ceremony.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact Jennifer Webber at 619-596-3136 or at

It’s my continued honor to serve you,

Joel Anderson
State Senator
