About California Calls

At California Calls, we believe we can reclaim the California Dream of equality, opportunity, and prosperity for all Californians. 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 ensure 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 to support systemic, progressive policy solutions.

With headquarters in Los Angeles, remote staff across California, 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. We strengthen the capacity and build collaborations with organizations across the state to build a strong movement capable of winning structural change.

The Opportunity: We Are California Data and Tech Coordinator

Our goal is to build a movement of Californians voting and acting together to win transformational policy changes statewide and locally.  Our approach is called Integrated Voter Engagement – we engage in year-round organizing of the voters who are neglected by traditional campaigns – low-income communities, communities of color, young voters, and immigrants, to build relationships, trust, and a growing movement of people fighting for structural solutions to poverty, disinvestment, and staggering inequality.
