Wednesday, March 16, 2022
1:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Event Category:

To ensure economic security for Californians, our public safety net needs to evolve, and that means getting serious about unrestricted cash support at the state level.

During this legislative cycle, there are many proposals to provide groups of Californians with direct cash supports. From tax credit proposals to reforms in safety net programs, there are critical policy levers California can and should implement now so that all Californians can have the resources needed to live and thrive in the Golden State.

What are the next steps that state leaders can take to make guaranteed income and its principles of unrestricted cash support a reality for California? Join our panel of policy experts as they answer this question and more.

General Session: 1:00 p.m. PT – 2:00 p.m. PT

Funder-Only Session: 2:15 p.m. PT – 3:00 p.m. PT
