Last year brought staggering changes in federal policies and this year promises more of the same. Whether it's taxes, immigration or the federal budget, what happens in Washington affects us here in California. As the largest state in the union and a strong driver of the nation's economy, California often sets an example for other states to follow.

In this interactive video conference, we'll learn about how recent federal actions impact California's nonprofits, the philanthropic sector and the communities they serve, and how California's leaders are responding.
