California Looking Forward | KCET

The day after the election of Donald J. Trump, California's Senate President pro Tem, Senator Kevin de Leon, issued a statement saying, “California was not a part of this nation when its history began, but we are clearly now the keeper of its future.”

On January 20th, 2017, Donald J. Trump was inaugurated as the 45th President of the United States. We have asked many of our writers and contributors to reflect on how the incoming presidency will shape, change, and redefine the future of our state. And although these opinions may not be shared by KCET, they reflect the pluralistic society on which California was founded.
