Assemblyman Jordan Cunningham has been named “Legislator of the Year” by the California District Attorneys Association.

CDAA recognized Cunningham for legislation protecting human trafficking victims and bolstering measures that can be taken against traffickers.

Cunningham has called the fight against human trafficking “the moral issue of our time”.

“Assemblyman Cunningham has used his experience as a former prosecutor to stand up for public safety and lead the fight against human trafficking,” said Stanislaus County District Attorney Birgit Fladager, CDAA’s Board President. “We are thankful for his leadership in the Legislature and proud to name him our ‘Legislator of the Year.'”

“District Attorneys, their deputies, and their staff work hard to keep us all safe. The fact that they have recognized my work on behalf of public safety is a true honor,” said Cunningham.
