Policy Insights is the California Budget & Policy Center’s annual conference that brings together community and statewide advocates, legislative staff, government leaders, nonprofit and philanthropic organizations, and others who are dedicated to creating a more just and equitable California.

For 2023, our one-day conference will take place in April and be hosted in person in Sacramento, CA.


Our team has historically collaborated with partner organizations to create a conference that fosters innovative discussion on how California can expand economic opportunity for all. This year, we are revamping our conference workshops to be more inclusive, center more diverse voices, and provide a platform for community-based and community-led organizations to engage with attendees. 

We are pleased to open two of our conference workshops to be entirely partner-led and are soliciting workshop proposals via online submission form due no later than November 30, 2022. 

We welcome workshop proposals from any organizations who are interested in holding a workshop in our conference, and we are excited to partner with applicants who want to utilize this platform to share unique perspectives, voices, and policy solutions advancing a shared vision of an equitable California for all.
