Latinx Families in the Golden State

12:30 p.m. | Tuesday, January 21, 2020

We’re improving the SPUR event registration process.
SPUR has launched a new ticketing system and we're asking you to register for each event that you're planning to attend. This will help us keep you informed of any changes that may occur and enable us to better tailor our programming to your interests.


Although California’s economy continues to grow, many Latinx families are being left behind. A new report from the Insight Center, Latinx Families in the Golden State: When Working Hard Isn’t Enough, indicates that more than half of all Latinx families across the state are struggling to pay for housing, food and utilities, despite working full-time at one or more jobs. What are the causes of this systemic inequity and what policy solutions can be designed to address these issues? Join us for an exploration of the report’s findings and a discussion about solving these profound challenges.

Individual ticket purchases. If you request a refund between 2 and 10 business days prior to the event, SPUR can issue a 25 percent refund. Requests for refunds received less than 2 days prior to an event cannot be accommodated.

Sponsorship payments will not be refunded, as sponsorship benefits take effect immediately and are on-going through the date of the event.

Auxiliary Services

If, in order to participate in a SPUR event, you need auxiliary aids or services for a disability (e.g., qualified interpreter, qualified reader, written materials, taped texts) please submit your request five business days before the event to publicprograms@spur.org or 415-781-8726 x132. SPUR will work with you in identifying effective auxiliary aids or services that it can provide. If you need to cancel your request, please notify SPUR at least two business days before the event.
