About this event

Governor Newsom’s proposed 2024-25 budget was just unveiled, sparking crucial questions about our state’s fiscal future.

Our policy experts break down what the budget proposal means for Californians, examining:

  • Governor Newsom’s plan to tackle the budget deficit, including dollar amounts, policy shifts, and their impact.
  • How the proposal both maintains commitments for and hurts low-income communities and Californians of color.
  • How missed revenue opportunities can help policymakers close the shortfall and create a more equitable, thriving state in the long run.

Join us as we kick off a new budget season and share the tools, policies, and budget investments needed to achieve an equity-focused budget and build healthy, thriving communities for all Californians. Don’t miss our first Empower event of the year!
