First Annual California “Ideas in Action” Policy Conference

First Annual California “Ideas in Action” Policy Conference

How Free Market Ideas Can Build New, Diverse Coalitions

Many have written the obituary for free-market ideas following 2018’s blue wave in California. To the contrary, there are many free-market ideas that have wide, bipartisan appeal and can serve as the foundation for new, diverse coalitions.

PRI’s first annual California “Ideas in Action” Policy Conference will explore how free-market ideas for the state’s most pressing challenges can make a real difference in improving people’s lives and achieve more political balance in California.

Come hear policy experts and real life changemakers at informative panel discussions on:

  • California’s Health Care Challenges
  • How Charter Schools Help Parents and Students Choose Diversity
  • Legislating Energy Poverty
  • How Private Charities and Non-Profits Are Lifting People Out of Poverty
