California’s values aren’t just a point of pride; they are the very fabric of our state’s history and our future. California has been on the leading edge of change, enacting bold reforms that reflect those values. It is that entrepreneurial and innovative spirit that has allowed California’s diversity to flourish and economy to grow and become one of the largest in the world.
California for All
The California Dream — the idea that every person can achieve a better life, regardless of where they start out — is central to who we are as Californians.

We can and must reanimate the California Dream, building a California for All.
