California Calls

Dear allies, supporters and friends,

Since September 2009, the California Alliance has worked to create a new base of progressive power in our state. Our progress, and the collective victories of the movement, should give us good reason to be hopeful for the future.

We know that California is not defined by the problems we face. California stands for something more. It’s the dignity that comes from being able to find a good job to support your family. It’s the promise that every child — no matter what neighborhood they live in — will have access to a quality education. It’s the security that comes from knowing that our state’s natural beauty will be there for the next generation.

Making that dream a reality is our calling.

That’s why I am happy to announce our new name. The California Alliance is now California Calls: An Alliance to Renew the Dream.

We’re proud of what California Calls has accomplished. But we know that if we’re going to make changes to the way our state government works, we can’t do it alone. We need your help.

Today, we’re launching our new website. Will you respond to our call and spread the word to five of your colleagues?  If we can count on you, click here to visit our website.

Despite the significant challenges we face as a movement, the Alliance anchor organizations as well as our dynamic friends and allies around the state have achieved a great deal. In the past six months we have:

  • Contacted over 170,000 voters, 63% of whom voted in the November election.
  • Convened a coalition of community-based organizations, unions and advocates to more strategically build power and create a lasting partnerships for progressive change.
  • Updated the equation for buiding statewide power through training , coaching and regional strategy sessions.

California Calls is looking forward to working with you to renew the California Dream.

Sincerely,

Anthony Thigpenn
