Even as California is home to great wealth, many people struggle every day to afford basic needs and find themselves priced out of the communities they’ve long called home. 

It’s our moment to demand better. We have an opportunity to build on the lessons learned over the pandemic and continue advocating for bold solutions that put cash directly into the hands of families and prioritize the health and well-being of people. We must craft antiracist policies, center Black, brown, and other historically underrepresented voices, and put an end to discriminatory practices of the past. 

We invite you to join us for — Policy Insights — the California Budget & Policy Center’s annual conference that brings together California’s policy community to share transformative ideas and strategize our pathway toward creating a more inclusive state, because together we can craft effective public policies and end poverty in California.

Policy Insights conference plenary featuring journalist Judy Linn, California Legislative Analyst Gabriel Petek, and Senator Holly J. Mitchell.
