Investing in the next generation of California leaders is central to our mission. Since 2012, we have been partnering with California Chief Justice Tani G.Cantil-Sakauye and State Superintendent of Public Instruction Tom Torlakson and their appointed Power of Democracy Steering Committee to improve civic awareness, learning and engagement in California. This year, the initiative assessed the state of civil learning in California Schools, receiving input at regional meetings and crafting research-based recommendations to ensure that all California K-12 students gain the knowledge, skills and values they need to succeed in college, career and civic life. We are proud to have supported this critical work along with The S.D. Bechtel, Jr. Foundation.
