Submitted by the Event Organizer
Widely regarded as the most influential African-American politician of the late twentieth century, the two-term Mayor of San Francisco and legendary Speaker of the California State Assembly will offer his perspective on what the next four years holds for California, its leaders and its citizens.
Willie L. Brown, Jr., has been at the center of California politics, government, and civic life for an astonishing four decades. His career spans the American Presidency from Lyndon Johnson to George W. Bush, and he’s worked with every California Governor from Pat Brown to Arnold Schwarzenegger.
From civil rights to education reform, tax policy, economic development, health care, international trade, domestic partnerships, and affirmative action, he’s left his imprimatur on every aspect of politics and public policy in the Golden State.
