The Future of California: People, Place, and Power

The Future of California: People, Place, and Power

March 24, 2021

As California and the world are changing, this symposium brought together California state legislators to share their visions of the future of California and the policies to achieve that future. California’s large and diverse population needs education, health, housing, and secure jobs in a changing economy. California is a leader in protecting this beautiful planet that we call home, but we still have work to do in protecting the environment and planning our housing and transportation to meet the local, state, national, and global needs. While California exerts power in the national and global arenas, power is unevenly distributed, and we have to work for a more equitable future.
