About this event

A California for all where everyone has access to economic opportunity, housing, health care, and other basic needs is possible. 

Policymakers can achieve this vision by advancing fairer taxation to prevent cuts when there’s a budget shortfall like today and build a truly just and equitable California for all. 

Join our panel of Budget Center experts and partners who will discuss: 

  • The vision for a California where every family and individual can thrive,
  • Immediate-term revenue-raising opportunities to cover the budget shortfall, 
  • And sustainable solutions for fair taxation in the long term. 

We’ll discuss the tools and policy levers needed to build thriving communities for all Californians. Join us!

Speakers

  • Shimica Gaskins, President & CEO, GRACE/End Child Poverty CA 
  • Tiffany Whiten, Senior Government Relations Advocate, SEIU CA State Council
  • Kayla Kitson, Senior Policy Analyst, California Budget & Policy Center
  • Mauricio Torres, Director of Communications, California Budget & Policy Center (moderator)
