Standing Together for a Just and Inclusive California: An Open Letter from California Philanthropic Organizations

The Weingart Foundation joins with 30+ philanthropic organizations and dozens of labor, community organizing, faith-based, policy, research, and academic leaders to stand together for a just and inclusive California. This effort urges the prioritization of key issues—health, justice, immigrants, workers, education and housing—as the state makes critical budget decisions.
