About this event

It’s that time of year — gearing up for another state budget and opportunities to improve the lives of Californians. The Budget Center’s “Dollars and Democracy” training is here to get you ready!

Whether you’re new to policy and politics or have been around for a while, you’ll learn something new as Scott Graves walks you through California’s budget process, including deadlines and the roles of the governor, the Legislature, and the public in making policy decisions for our communities. Plus hear more about how you can make your voice heard.

Join us for our last Empower event of the year!


Meet the panel:

Scott Graves, Director of Research, California Budget & Policy Center

Renita Polk, Principal Consultant, Senate Committee on Budget and Fiscal Review

Adriana Ramos-Yamamoto, Policy Analyst, California Budget & Policy Center (moderator)

The California Budget & Policy Center engages in independent fiscal and policy analysis and public education with the goal of improving public policies affecting the economic and social well-being of Californians with low and middle incomes.
