All-In California: Equity and the Future of the Golden State

Monday, September 23, 2013

As the rest of the nation begins to look more like California, racial and economic inclusion are more than just issues of fairness and justice—they are absolute economic imperatives.

PolicyLink and the Center for American Progress are working together to advance this idea and a set of policies to build an economy in which everyone can manifest their full potential—including communities of color. Our new book All-In Nation: An America that Works for All makes the case that equity is an economic imperative and provides the policy blueprint to create an equitable economy.

Please join us for a half-day convening to explore the book’s implications for California and discuss the policies, politics, and organizing needed to create an All-In California and Bay Area.

Bellarmine Forum 2013: Restoring Justice

October 20, 2013 – November 9, 2013

The 13th annual Bellarmine Forum will address the topic of “Restoring Justice.” “Restoring Justice” invites multidisciplinary reflection on the theories and practices of justice in our contemporary society, with a focus on the promise of restorative justice as a mechanism for addressing harm, teaching conflict prevention in schools and other institutions, rebuilding relationships and communities, and reintegrating offenders into society. The forum will explore legal, theological, ethical, political, sociological, educational, and ecological aspects of restoring justice in the contexts of Los Angeles, the United States, and the world. The overarching aim of the forum is to galvanize campus-wide discussions and actions; the basic structure consists of: talking/listening/debating focused on understanding and doing/implementing focused on engaged learning.
