About this event

  • 1 day 3 hours

California Policy Center is hosting our second annual Parent Union Legislative Summit in Sacramento —Parents, Not Partisans— on Wednesday, February 8 - Thursday, February 9, 2023 and you’re invited!

The event is free with PROMO CODE: ParentUnion

Join parents, parent group leaders, education reform advocates, teachers, and school board members from around the state to build on the historic momentum of California’s nonpartisan parent movement to take back our schools.

On Wednesday, February 8th, from 9:30am - 5:00pm, summit attendees will hear from education reform leaders and education experts on the most important calls to action for the next year, including how to:

  • Activate parents in your district to hold new school boards accountable
  • Stand up to the teachers unions in defending our K-12 schools
  • Advance critical education issues such as literacy and math competencies
  • Make an impact in the state legislature in 2023 and much more!

After the event, we hope you'll join us to relax, have fun and network with summit participants at a special evening reception at 5:30pm.

Then, on Thursday, February 9th, from 9:30am-1:00pm, summit attendees will visit the State Capitol with fellow advocates for a roundtable discussion with key legislative staff and meetings with legislators to let them know that California's parent movement has only just begun! Join us for a casual, optional lunch immediately following.

Speakers and panelists include:

State Senator Rosilicie Ochoa Bogh, Vice Chair, Senate Education Committee; Assemblyman Josh Hoover, Member, Assembly Education Committee; Megan Bacigalupi, Founder and Executive Director, CA Parent Power; Mari Barke, Director, CPC's California Local Elected Officials & Trustee, Orange County Board of Education; Lance Christensen, CPC's Vice President of Education Policy and Government Affairs & 2022 Candidate for State Superintendent of Public Instruction; Dr. Nicole Conragan, Board Member, National Coalition for Public School Options; Emory Edwards, Vice President of Outreach, EdChoice; Cecilia "Ceci" Iglesias, CPC's Director of Latino Engagement & Founder, Parent Union; Lance Izumi, Senior Director of Pacific Research Institute's Center for Education; Christina Laster, K-12 Education Policy & Legislation Expert; Sharon McKeeman, Founder, Let Them Breathe; Gustavo Vargas, Host, El Diálogo Libre; Jonathan Zachreson, School Board Member, Roseville City School District & Founder, Reopen California Schools.
