Envisioning California Conference

The Envisioning California Conference, founded by the Center for California Studies in 1989, assembles Californians with particular insight into the bits and pieces of California's diversity of histories, cultures and philosophies, and the consequences of the diversity.  Our discussions attempt to analyze successes and failures in efforts to bring Californians together and to keep differences from breeding discord. We question what defines California, who Californians are, and where California is going.  We reach into the broad vistas of the California experience, from politics, ethnicity, and history to the arts, education and the environment.

27th Annual Envisioning California Conference
Our Voices: Advancing Civic Engagement in California

OCTOBER 7, 2016 at the Tsakopoulos Library Galleria

As a diverse, geographically expansive state with 40 million residents, California can be challenging to govern. It is a special challenge to ensure that the interests of the state’s population are served. More than many states, California asks its residents to express their preferences through elections, ballot propositions, surveys, community forums, and numerous other mechanisms. And yet not all California voices are heard. At the 27th annual Envisioning California conference, we will explore various aspects of civic engagement among Californians, including efforts to improve how we can better connect with our government and with our communities.
