CGP breaks down long standing barriers between conservation, labor, small business, and social justice and environmental justice organizations to form and facilitate pragmatic, action- based progressive partnerships, emboldening and empowering community leaders to strategic action throughout California.
CGP is committed to you, and to change. Our goal is to see key social and environmental issues raised through new community alliances and ground-breaking campaigns. We address key planning and conservation issues with new tools, and make our partners' work more effective. We convene, train, facilitate, mentor, advise, and prefer that others take the credit.
CGP recently graduated its 500th community organizer from its training arm, The California Organizing Academy (COA). Of that number, 27 of those graduates have been elected to public office and more than 30 are running non-profits, most of them women or people from communities of color.
