For almost a decade, asset-building advocates have been working to educate legislators and other policymakers about the benefits of, and need for, state policy to expand opportunities for low- and moderate-income Californians to build financial assets. Recently, these efforts have included intensive "grassroots" engagement - through listening sessions and surveys of individuals and families in communities across the state - to better understand residents' needs and priorities. At the same time, advocates have been communicating and coordinating across networks to leverage connections, constituent voices, and political influence to affect policy change.
