To ensure economic equity for Californians, our public supports need to evolve, and we must seize the opportunity to act boldly. Where do we start? Building a guaranteed income policy, expanding tax credits for Californians with low incomes, strengthening existing safety net programs, and removing barriers to accessing public supports to help families live and thrive in California.
The past year has shown us that state and federal governments can act boldly to help families, but there’s more work to do — our panel of California leaders discuss the future of cash supports in our state.
