As California and the world are changing, this symposium brings 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.
The event features Assemblymembers David Chiu and James Ramos and Senators Steven Bradford, Anna Caballero, and Nancy Skinner.
The moderator is Marisa Lagos of KQED, and Michael Drake, M.D, President of the University of California, will give opening remarks.
