The Future of California Policy: A Roundtable with Elected Officials – Recording

March 18, 2021

It’s 2021; new year, new legislative session for California. As we’re (hopefully) nearing the end of the pandemic, our elected officials are reckoning with not only the fallout from the last year, but also the decades-long buildup to the affordability crisis we’re experiencing today. What can our legislators do to bring the state out of recession and build economic resilience for everyone who lives here?

On Thursday, March 18th 12pm-1pm, we brought California legislators to our virtual table to discuss what policies they’re introducing to tackle housing, workers rights, and pandemic relief. We discussed the tech economy’s impact on the legislative agenda and what tech workers can do to advance equitable policy this year. The panel was moderated by Catherine Bracy, CEO and Co-Founder of TechEquity Collaborative. Panelists included:

  • State Senator Scott Wiener, CA Senate District 11
  • Assemblymember David Chiu, CA Assembly District 17
  • Assemblymember Buffy Wicks, CA Assembly District 15
  • Assemblymember Lorena Gonzalez, CA Assembly District 80

This webinar was hosted on Zoom.
