Since an early age, Jenny Bach has dedicated her life to improving her community and serving as a champion for the underrepresented. As a Sacramento native, she proudly served as a District Representative for State Senator Dr. Richard Pan and as a Consultant for the California Asian & Pacific Islander Legislative Caucus. She currently is the Director of Strategic Partnerships at a nonprofit, Golden State Opportunity, that serves to outreach and uplift low-income working Californians with effective anti-poverty tools like the California Earned Income Tax Credit and other public benefits.
The child of Vietnamese immigrants, Jenny learned the value of hard work and witnessed firsthand the daily barriers that many Californians face. In college, Jenny served as Vice President of Communications of Sacramento State College Dems. During a non-election year, she made sure that her chapter became one of the largest college chapter clubs in the state. She then went on to become the club’s president and mobilized students during a midterm election. She coordinated with various local campaigns to ensure that there were always eager students canvassing to secure the election of local Democratic candidates. As a result of her hard work and leadership, the chapter was named the California Young Democrats College Chapter of the Year.
After graduating from college, Jenny continued to remain active in her community by serving as Fundraising Chair for the Stonewall Democrats Club of Greater Sacramento and as Vice President of Fundraising of Sacramento County Young Democrats. In both capacities, she proved to be an adept fundraiser and helped increase community engagement.
Jenny has also served as Secretary and as Parliamentarian on the board of the California Young Democrats. In these capacities, she made it her mission to put her grassroots and field expertise to work by improving the government from the bottom up.
Her time as a leader in various local and statewide organizations has taught her that a democratic government only works when the community is educated and engaged.
