What

Join Small Business Majority at California Asset Building Coalition's (CABC) two-day symposium where we will discuss the Coalition's collective power in 2023. We will hear from community leaders who have had direct experience with systemic and structural economic marginalization and identify local powerhouses for policy change.


Bianca Blomquist, Small Business Majority's Policy Director will join a panel on Tuesday, December 6 at 10:30am with Assemblymember Tina McKinnor (D-Inglewood), Jessica Bartholow, Chief of Staff for Senator Nancy Skinner (D-Oakland), Shimica Gaskins, President & CEO of GRACE, and Jeanne Kuang of CalMatters for a discussion of the 2023 legislative and political landscape and how it will impact small business owners in California.


Topics of discussion include:

  • An interactive opportunity to set CABC's 2023 policy agenda
  • Connect and re-connect with and learn from wealth and asset-building allies across California
  • An overview of CABC's latest research, Valuing Who We Are at Work, a year-long study about who we are in the asset building and economic justice movement, our personal experiences with systemic marginalization, and how these experience help us be responsive, dexterous, and effective at our jobs
