Marc Levine (born April 26, 1974) is an American politician serving as the California State Assemblyman for the 10th district since 2012. A member of the Democratic Party, his district encompasses the North San Francisco Bay Area. Levine is the current Chairman the California Legislative Jewish Caucus. Prior to being elected to the State Assembly in 2012, he was a member of the San Rafael City Council. Before elected office, he worked as a senior product manager for Benetech, a social enterprise technology company, executive director of a web site promoting tsunami relief, and a business development strategy manager for a software company.

Levine has stated: "Immigrants are welcome and we will do everything we can to help them achieve legal status." In 2015, authored two immigration bills— both of which were signed by Governor Brown.
AB 899 safeguards the privacy of immigrant children by requiring federal immigration officials to obtain a court order before accessing juvenile records. AB 900 helps unaccompanied minor immigrants who are escaping violence and exploitation to receive humanitarian relief through the Special Immigrant Juvenile Status visa process.
In 2014, Levine worked with legislative leaders and Governor Brown to pass legislation providing $3 million in legal aid for immigrants.
