After Mike shares his data and analysis with us, we will be joined by a panel of local leaders, including Councilwoman Esther Lemus, Councilwoman Marta Cruz, Student Leader Jacquelyn Torrez, and Santa Rosa School Board member Omar Medina, moderated by SCOE Board Trustee Herman G. Hernandez.

These emerging political leaders will discuss the challenges, opportunities, keys to their political success, and plans for making an impact in office.

Equity in Housing


In order to grow economic opportunity and build an inclusive economy, we must meet the housing needs of our community. To realize this vision, we all have to work together and imagine what a more inclusive community looks like, and then work hard to bring this vision into fruition.

To further this conversation, we are bringing Ben Metcalf, Director for the California Department of Housing and Community Development and many other local, state and federal officials to the table to explore and better understand the unique housing issues and opportunities facing our community.
