About the Program

Voter turnout in California is in decline. The gap between those who vote and the rest of the population remains wide. And PPIC surveys indicate that many Californians are disengaged from and distrustful of state government. Join us for a wide-ranging discussion about how to motivate stronger, more consistent, and more diverse civic engagement in California. This event will feature a conversation with Tani G. Cantil-Sakauye, California’s chief justice, and Alex Padilla, California’s secretary of state.
