Dr. Corey Jackson
Assemblymember Corey A. Jackson, DSW, MSW, was elected to the California State Assembly in November of 2022 to represent the 60th Assembly District.
Dr. Jackson graduated from CSU San Bernardino, where he received his degree in political science and served as a member of the CSU Board of Trustees and Chair of the Santo Manuel Student Union Board of Directors. He is also a graduate of California Baptist University, where he received his Master of Social Work degree and a Doctor of Social Work degree.
Before being elected Assemblymember of the 60th Assembly District, Dr. Jackson served on the Riverside County Board of Education from 2020 - 2022 and represented portions of Riverside, Moreno Valley, Perris, and the unincorporated community of Mead Valley. He also served as the founder and Chief Executive Officer of SBX Youth and Family Services. His mission is to break the cycle of poverty and violence through mentoring, education, and community organizing. The organization was instrumental in a historic settlement of a lawsuit against the unconstitutional Youth Accountability Team (YAT) program in Riverside County that treated thousands of youth — especially those of color — like criminals for minor adolescent misbehaviors. The county agreed to groundbreaking measures.
Assemblymember Dr. Corey A. Jackson's community work and service began in high school, where he was elected as the first student board member of the Rialto Unified School Riverside to cast an official vote and where he founded Sigma Beta Xi, which would evolve into SBX: Youth and Family Services. This organization serves thousands of Inland Empire residents annually.
Dr. Jackson has served as a governor appointee to the CSU Board of Trustees and as State President of the NAACP Youth & College division.
