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 530th 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.
Our next Community Organizer training will be held in Auburn, Placer County on September 30th and October 1st, 2022!

Congratulations to the graduates of our April Chico Organizer training!
"I found the CGP training to be comprehensive with guest speakers, interactive small group sessions, and well-thought out curricula. David Hunt as the lead facilitator is someone I would recommend to all who would like to advance their skills in their community social justice efforts!"
