Last year The Malin Burnham Center for Civic Engagement (CCE) at The San Diego Foundation hosted more than 1,500 community members of different age, race and zip code, as well as influential keynotes, from leading futurists to social justice champions of the most groundbreaking movements of our time.

The CCE brought community together to learn and discuss social challenges and opportunities by facilitating dialogue and collaborative action to create a vibrant San Diego region.

In 2016, CCE welcomed award-winning social justice visionaries: civil rights icon Dolores Huerta and elder boom expert Ai-Jen Poo; celebrities like pro-snowboarder and outdoor advocate Ryan Hudson and filmmaker/anti-recidivism champion Malik Vitthal; thought leaders such as UC Irvine professor of Criminology, Law & Society Charis Kubrin and University of Southern California professor of Sociology, American Studies & Ethnicity Dr. Manuel Pastor, and more.
