Class 0f 2021 Commencement Speaker

California Assemblymember Adrin Nazarian

Adrin Nazarian was elected in November 2012 to represent California’s 46th Assembly District, which includes the Hollywood Hills, Lake Balboa, North Hills, North Hollywood, Panorama City, Sherman Oaks, Studio City, Toluca Lake, Valley Glen, Universal City, Van Nuys, and Valley Village.

Since his election, Adrin has diligently worked to create educational opportunities for young adults, increase mass transit in the San Fernando Valley, provide smarter management of vital water resources through infrastructure improvements, protect and expand the film industry, and strengthen our infrastructure for much-needed earthquake resiliency. He chairs the Aging and Long-Term Care Committee as well as the Select Committee on 2028 Olympic and Paralympic Games, and sits on Arts, Entertainment, Sports, Tourism, and Internet Media, Health, Budget Subcommittee No. 4 on State Administration, and Transportation.

Adrin is proud of his record taking on powerful special interests in Sacramento. He has led the fight in Sacramento:

  • To bring entertainment jobs back to our communities;
  • Protect our affordable housing and help the homeless get off our streets and back on their feet.
  • Take on the NRA to pass sensible gun laws;
  • And to stand up to health insurance companies to allow doctors to prescribe medicine, not health insurance companies.

Not only is Adrin an influential voice for his constituents while in Sacramento, he’s actively engaged in his district. To date, he has organized over 80 free women’s self-defense classes, reaching over 4,000 participants; and hosted or co-hosted 100 events/year throughout the district—ranging from child car seat safety, ADA workshops, pet adoption events, tree plantings, small business support forums, renters rights workshops, and map your neighborhood events. He also represents the multitude of constituents who are engaged in every facet of the Arts, either for leisure or employment, by having a seat on the Board of the California Film Commission.

Adrin has always believed in civic engagement and the importance of giving back to his community.

He has served on the boards of several community-based organizations including the East Valley YMCA and the YWCA. Adrin was one of the founding members of the Generation Next Mentorship program, which worked with local public schools to give young people alternatives to a life of gangs and drugs.

Prior to being elected, he served as Chief of Staff to Paul Krekorian in both Mr. Krekorian’s capacity as Assistant Majority Leader in the California State Legislature and Los Angeles Councilmember. Adrin also served as an aide to Congressman Brad Sherman, participated in the prestigious CORO Fellowship in Public Affairs program, and was appointed as Special Assistant to the California Trade and Commerce Agency by former Governor Gray Davis.

Adrin attended UCLA, where he received his Bachelor of Arts degree in Economics. He and his wife, Diana, live in West Toluca Lake with their children Alex, David-Beg, and Maggie.
