California 100, a statewide initiative that aims to provide a vision and plan for the state’s next 100 years, announced its 26-member commission this week.

The group’s commissioners come from diverse sets of fields, ranging from health care to transportation.

Some of the commissioners include Michael Tubbs, Gov. Newsom’s special adviser for economic mobility and opportunity; Jeffrey Reynoso, executive director of Latino Coalition for a Healthy California; and Dan Schnur, former chairman of the California Fair Political Practices Commission.

“We are thrilled to draw on the expertise of these transformative leaders who are making a difference in their respective fields and already leaving a mark on California,” said Karthick Ramakrishnan, executive director of California 100, in a statement. “Their unique perspectives will inform our work to create a vision and strategy for California’s future — one that is inclusive, equitable and sustainable. California 100 belongs to Californians and we are excited to begin our partnership with these dynamic leaders who represent the best of our state — and the best of what’s to come.”
