Regional Convenings

The California Alliance for Prevention Funding is holding convenings across the state of California to share our proposal for a California Wellness Trust and concrete steps you can take to be part of making a Wellness Trust a reality.

Each convening highlights local programs that are making a difference in their communities, talked about the impact they are having, how they could grow their program with sustained, dedicated funding for prevention and what will happen when their funding ends.
