“My journey in politics began the second I was born,” says California State Assemblywoman Autumn Burke.

Burke, 45, grew up in an environment very familiar to politics. Her mother, Yvonne Braithwaite Burke, won a seat in the U.S. House in 1966, becoming the first African American woman elected to the California assembly and later became the first woman and African American on the L.A. County Board of Supervisors. Burke’s father, Dr. William Burke, is best known as the founder and former long-time president of the city of Los Angeles Marathon, and Chairman of the AQMD Governing Board.
