Invest in Connection & Empowerment

Policy Insights brings people together from across the state who are committed to advancing more equitable policy in California. We’ve heard from state leaders, advocates, and impacted community members about how we can work together to expand equitable economic opportunities and promote well-being for all Californians.

The Policy Insights Conference is a unique space that connects community leaders, nonprofits and philanthropy to government and elected officials so that together, we can find solutions for a more equitable and inclusive California.

This year, we’re looking forward to continuing the conversation. 

Despite a looming budget shortfall, California is still home to considerable wealth, providing an opportunity to ensure that every resident has a roof over their head, access to food, and a safety net to fall on.

It’s time for real solutions that prioritize the well-being of Californians and their families, not budget cuts. Join us at Policy Insights 2024, where we bring together the state’s policy community to share transformative ideas and strategize about our pathways toward creating a more inclusive state.
