I started The California Table with the goal of featuring California’s diverse community leaders who you may not typically find at institutional decision-making tables. Having traveled the state extensively prior to the pandemic, it’s clear that California’s success depends on building local power and elevating these very voices to create lasting change.
In this Episode, it’s my hope to heighten attention on the persistent inequities that exist within LatinX communities. I’m joined by my guest Poncho Guevara, the Executive Director of Sacred Heart Community Service in San Jose.
Listen as he speaks expansively about the work his agency is doing in Silicon Valley to address housing instability, food insecurity, health needs, and more.
I hope you enjoy this episode and find it informative. As always, your feedback is greatly appreciated.
