Capital Action Team 2013 Charter
In 2013, California Forward and the California Stewardship Network hosted Regional Forums attended by more than 1,700 business and civic leaders around the state. The forums resulted in top priorities to support middle class job growth and regional economies focused on advancing the triple bottom line of economy, environment and social equity. The 2013 Action Team Charters set down parameters, expectations and a work plan to move these priorities to statewide policy.
Capital, one of the 2012 Summit Signature Initiatives, emerged as one of the top priorities across regions during this year’s Forums. Regions identified increased investment in local businesses and economies as a key component of triple-bottom-line prosperity. Increasing access to capital in under-served communities was also highlighted as a top priority.
