Capitol Weekly: An LGBT ‘caucus’ for Capitol staff

Wednesday, July 26, 2017

The group started with a question.

Paul came to Sacramento as a science and technology fellow, after getting his doctorate in molecular Biology.

His program introduces scientists to the policy-side they may need to accomplish their work, while providing technical experience to legislative offices.

He was placed in Assemblymember Evan Low’s office, who chairs the LGBT Caucus. He became an LGBT consultant for the caucus, a role the prior person left open.

That meant he went around and spoke with LGBT people in the Capitol, asking, what would they like to see from the caucus?
