California Considers: Discussing Big, Bold Ideas for the State’s Future
A sample of Californians was asked to react to transformative policy reforms for the future. Hear what they had to say and what it could mean for you and our state.
California 100, in partnership with Stanford University's Deliberative Democracy Lab (DDL), housed at the Center on Democracy, Development and the Rule of Law, and the UC Berkeley Goldman School of Public Policy, embarked on an effort to ask Californians directly to react to big, bold policy proposals that could dramatically transform the state’s trajectory in the years and decades ahead.
Using previous Deliberative Polls® conducted by Stanford DDL as inspiration, “California Considers: Policy Deliberations for Our Long Term Success” was designed to center the experiences and perspectives of real Californians from every walk of life to test how significant changes in policy might improve the quality of life for all residents. Participants were given a pre-survey, participated in deliberations with one another, then asked for their final opinions about various policy ideas. These results will be released in tandem with this discussion.
Please join us for an important discussion on California's future.
The program is supported by California 100.
