Our Partners

The following coalitions and organizations are working hard to end child poverty in California.

Raising California Together

Raising California Together is a broad coalition of child care providers, agencies, parents, educators, clergy and interfaith networks, unions, small businesses, women’s and children’s advocates, community groups, and public health organizations united to press for local, state, and national policy solutions to increase access to quality child care and early learning choices. http://raisingcaliforniatogether.org/

L.A. Raise the Wage

L.A. Raise the Wage is a coalition of business, labor and community leaders trying to accomplish what economists, small businesses, and workers are all asking us to do: Raise the minimum wage – and not just a little, but enough to bring the hundreds of thousands of Angelenos who power our economy into the middle class. It’s good for business, it’s good for taxpayers, and, most of all, it’s the right thing to do for workers, who have earned it. http://www.laraisethewage.org/

Western Center on Law & Poverty

Western Center on Law & Poverty, California’s oldest and largest legal services support center, was created in 1967 by a passionate group of attorneys and legal scholars from USC, UCLA and Loyola law schools. Western Center leads the fight in the courts, counties and capital to secure housing, health care and a strong safety net for low-income Californians. http://www.wclp.org/

California Partnership

The California Partnership is a statewide coalition of community-based groups, organizing and advocating for the policies and programs that work to reduce and end poverty. We organize to build power and leadership among low-income communities to shape the policies that affect our lives the most and reduce poverty. http://www.california-partnership.org/

California Budget Project

The California Budget & Policy Center was established in 1995 to provide Californians with a source of timely, objective, and accessible expertise on state fiscal and economic policy issues. The Budget Center engages in independent fiscal and policy analysis and public education with the goal of improving the economic and social well-being of low- and middle-income Californians. http://calbudgetcenter.org/
