Keynote Speaker (in progress)
This panel will discuss how the entertainment industry, specifically film, can act as a vehicle for igniting social change through the education of progressive public policy and our current cultural landscape. We will hear from members of the film industry on their experience with this medium to advocate for social change.
California is often though of as the leader in progressive environmental and energy policy, taking on challenges in water, transportation, housing and more. This panel will discuss current or upcoming initiatives in California and around the country, with highlights of recent important successes at the local, state and national level and a look to the future.
This panel will host a discussion on different models used across sectors to engage various communities and promote social change. We will hear from advocates in the non-profit sector, from philanthropists and from members working in local and state governments on how they connect with or influence their respective communities.
Different points of view will discuss the current political landscape after the last election cycle, what it takes to be successful young candidate, and the state of current campaign management.
