Over the past few months, the COVID-19 pandemic and recent events surrounding the murder of George Floyd have only further exposed the large and pre-existing health, racial, economic, and regional disparities across our state. The challenges of the current moment only underscore the critical importance of maintaining our focus on driving greater equity and inclusion throughout our state – particularly as we enter the important stages of economic and social recovery and rebuilding.
Over the past six weeks, the Governor’s office and regional partners held seven virtual listening sessions across the Central Valley and Inland Empire with the crucial community and nonprofit stakeholders. The goal of these convenings is to engage with local voices and hear from community leaders about the needs and opportunities for investment in inland California, with particular sensitivity to how COVID-19 and recent events have exposed underlying challenges.
Join this conversation to discuss and reimagine an inclusive and equitable recovery and growth in Inland California. Philanthropy California, the Governor’s Office, the Center for Social Innovation at UC Riverside, and the Sierra Health Foundation will co-host this webinar.
