About California Calls

California Calls (501c3) and its sister organization California Calls Action Fund (501c4) is a powerful alliance of 30 local community-based organizations spanning urban, rural and suburban counties across the state. We engage, educate and motivate new and infrequent voters, including young people, communities of color, and poor and working-class neighborhoods to make sure who votes in California reflects who lives in California. Through our bottom-up approach, we organize people most impacted by decades of disinvestment, deteriorating public services, mass incarceration and growing inequality in support of systemic, progressive policy solutions. Working together and building the power of communities who are often left out of policy decisions, we believe we can reclaim the California Dream of equality, opportunity, and prosperity for all Californians.

With our headquarters in Los Angeles, remote staff based in the Bay Area, and partner organizations anchored in 14 counties, we advance state-based structural battles that strengthen democracy, fully fund schools, affordable housing and local services, and expand racial, gender and economic justice. Knowing no one organization alone can win the bold policies needed to address poverty and inequality, we strengthen the capacity and build collaborations with organizations across the state to build a strong movement capable of winning structural change.


The Opportunity: Million Voters Project Strategic Communications Manager

MVP is seeking a Strategic Communications Manager to assist with the implementation with our public education campaign to build awareness about the need for bold systemic state-based solutions that promote a government that cares, multiracial democracy and corporate accountability. This position will help develop written and creative content and oversee day to day management of a range of social media platforms, including but not limited to instagram, facebook and twitter. The role will also support alignment of MVP partners by creating a social media calendar, campaign toolkits and providing technical support to help partners and local affiliates amplify campaign assets. The role may also include support of digital and field organizing through mass email and SMS campaigns.

The Opportunity: Housing Legislative and Campaign Manager

California is facing a set of housing crises that profoundly impacts a broad set of social and economic outcomes for individuals, communities, and our state as a whole. Resolving the complicated issues at stake requires many solutions, but a growing cross section of power building organizations, equity advocates and other progressive leaders recognize that solutions within the current housing system will not lead to safe, affordable, stable housing for all Californians, particularly those at the lowest income levels. To achieve this vision, we need to invest in building a social housing system that holds a substantial supply of housing permanently off the speculative market. California Calls is seeking a Legislative and Campaign Manager to help lead analysis, research and campaign development for a new campaign to build public support and advance structural solutions to expand Social Housing in California.  

The Opportunity: Advancement Director

California Calls is seeking an Advancement Director to lead the creation and implementation of fundraising strategies for California Calls. Working with the Senior Management Team, the Advancement Director will oversee and manage fundraising efforts, cultivate relationships with foundations and individual donors, prepare grant proposals and reports, and communicate our strategic vision, program areas and impact through both written materials and verbal presentations. The projected California Calls Education Fund 2022 budget is estimated at $8 Million.  The Advancement Director reports to the Chief Executive Officer and supervises the Development Manager.
