- - Born in Birmingham, Ala., Millender-McDonald has garnered several "firsts" during her political career, including becoming the first African-American woman to serve on the Carson City Council. She has represented California's 37th congressional district in Los Angeles since 1996. "There are no more important responsibilities in the Peoples House than ensuring that their ability to vote in free and fair elections is not compromised in any manner, and that their government operates effectively and efficiently," she commented. Millender-McDonald also is the founder and executive director of the League of African-American Women and the founder of the Young Advocates, a political leadership-training program for African-Americans between the ages of 18 and 35.
