The California Endowment Holiday Card Video

We all know the challenges of 2020 – COVID-19, a very divisive election, the racial injustice and loss of lives.

Yet, in these uncertain times, you have made a remarkable difference. Your awesome display of leadership and power-building demonstrates that no force is stronger than people who are united in their vision for change.

You masked up to protect friends, family and strangers from the COVID-19 virus. You rallied to bring justice and racial equality for all. You showed up to vote – more than 17.5 million of you – to move this state and this country forward.

So, as we safely celebrate the holidays and look forward to 2021, our family at The California Endowment honors your Power and Voice. Our new vision and mission is inspired by you and the prospect of a brighter and healthier future.

Our family is optimistic for the future. Those 2020 challenges and accomplishments show that we can and will join together to build power and make a difference. So, from our family to you please enjoy this holiday story.
