Realizing the Dream: Centering Race & Economic Security for All in California

The purpose of our annual Symposium is to bring together the asset building community across the state to generate new ideas, innovations, and strategies that promote financial inclusion and financial security for all Californians.

Our annual Symposium attracts people from a variety of fields such as community-based organization, researchers, policy advocates, financial institutions and practitioners. In light of the upcoming elections, we hope this year’s theme will highlight and elevate how we can move bold ideas into action and policy change.
