Why You Should Care
Now is a great time to live in Sacramento. Here’s why:
WE'RE A POLITICAL HOTBED
California is a Groundbreaker for trend-setting legislation that’s often adopted nationwide and around the world. As the state capitol, Sacramento is the place where this innovative policy starts. Our “Policy and a Pint” series focuses on change-making politics and policy, so you can learn what’s coming out of the Capitol – and how it may affect you.
WE SET TRENDS
California sets them for everything from tech and entertainment to public policy and urban planning. The Sacramento region is home to big companies and organizations doing big things in tech, agriculture, healthcare, and higher-ed. Think Kaiser Permanente, UC Davis, Farm to Fork. They’re setting trends and shaping policy that goes beyond Sacramento, and out of state. Our panels and single-person interviews bring you up close with the local people and places making big things, cool things happen.
WE'RE UP AND COMING
The buzz surrounding Sacramento is getting louder – we’ve got the food scene, a new stadium, revitalization of old and new neighborhoods. The City of Sacramento and Sacramento County has plenty happening -- come to our California Groundbreaker events to find out about local, regional and statewide trends, movements, urban planning and policy, and all the things going into making Sacramento a better place to live.
WE'VE GOT COOL PEOPLE FOR YOU TO MEET
Besides getting to meet the Groundbreakers, you get to mingle with a cool crowd -- an educated bunch of Sacramento locals and new-to-town professionals from other parts of California, other states and other countries. What you all have in common: You want to know what’s happening around you, you want some intellectual buzz and culturally-stimulating conversation, and you’ll enjoy it all even more with a pint of beer or a wine glass in your hand.
