Roosevelt members, both alumni and students, throughout California and individuals interested in California policy will congregate in the State's capital building to present and discuss innovative policy solutions. All students are encouraged to participate. (In other words, you do not have to have any connection to California--just an interest in California policy and politics.)
Policy solutions will address some of the state's most convoluted policy issues including K-12 education (funding and equality), higher education (access and affordability), environmental and healthcare policy issues. Audience members and attendees will include representatives from related and partner organizations, policy makers, assembly members, Congress members (or their representatives), etc.
Select participants will have the opportunity to present their proposals at the conference itself. All participants will engage with local stakeholders who have an interest in implementation of their proposals.

Select policy pieces based on thoroughness, relevance, and innovativeness will have a booth and presentation time. Approximately 5 policy pieces will be chosen to present, and each presenter will be given 10-15 minutes. The audience will have the opportunity to sit through the presentations and visit the booths simultaneously. Policy pieces will be edited and printed in a journal titled: Golden Ideas for a Progressive California.
