The 2019 Roadmap to Shared Prosperity, based on the input of more than 500 participants at the 2018 Summit in Santa Rosa, combines the best thinking and strategies from ensuring all Californians have the building blocks of the California Dream:

► Health and Well-being

► Housing, Mobility and Connectivity

► Lifelong Learning

► Ecosystem Vitality and Working Landscapes

► Prosperous Economies, Thriving Workers

► Effective Governance and Robust Democracy

► Inclusive Communities


"You're there demonstrating every single year a capacity to deliver on the things we promote and promise up in Sacramento."

- Gavin Newsom, CA Governor

"I think the Summit's work is critical."

- CA State Senate President pro Tempore Toni Atkins

"The work of CA Fwd is indicative of the fact that you can do it. You can find that common ground..."

- Ben Metcalf, Director, CA Department of Housing & Community Development


"There's been no other entity that's been able or willing to take on that challenge but CA Fwd & the Economic Summit has done just that."

- Ashley Swearengin, CEO, Central Valley Community Foundation

"We don't see too many of those conversations across the state & we need more people involved in this kind of dialogue.

- Oscar Chavez, California Stewardship Network
