As a global leader in entertainment, aerospace, international trade and higher education, Southern California enjoys an abundance of resources to aid in the region's further development. It also has the nation’s most diverse population and is a hub for manufacturing and innovation. But Southern Californians face challenges in living up to the region’s economic potential.

SoCal Storylines: Conversations with movers and shakers is a series of forward-looking public forums co-presented by the Milken Institute’s California Center and KPCC. We’ll dive deep into Southern California’s regional issues by talking to people on the front lines of those issues – and we welcome you to join the conversation about how to solve some of our most vexing problems.
