Building a Just & Equitable California Starts with the State Budget
At the California Budget & Policy Center, we believe our state must make budget and policy decisions that help Californians thrive and prioritize the needs of those who have been denied the opportunity to share in our state’s prosperity.
We work to make the state budget and policies easier to understand, so all Californians — including you — can advocate for a more inclusive state.
