About Center for California Studies

A Gateway to Public Service & Leadership

The Center for California Studies is based at Sacramento State – the “Capital Campus” of the California State University.

Being located in California’s capital strategically positions the Center to be the link between the University and the three branches of California’s government, think tanks, other universities, and outside partnerships involved with public service in California. This, paired with our extensive research, academic programming, and position as part of the county’s largest public university system makes us uniquely equipped to fulfill our mission to bridge academia and government in the service of strengthening California’s democracy.

October 3 Envisioning CA Speaker Series presents: Cannabis Equity in California

With the rising number of states legalizing cannabis and the federal government shifting away from incarcerating nonviolent drug offenders, several California communities have adopted cannabis equity programs to address decades of drug enforcement that fell disproportionately upon minorities.

This event is free to the public and will have lunch provided. It will be held at the Sac State Downtown location, 304 S Street, Sacramento, CA. This event will also be livestreamed.  Please register here.
