The landscape of the Central Coast is undergoing a major shift. This amazing region of the state is home to a struggling working class of immigrant farm workers and low-wage service workers—people who are coming together at a new scale, which is quickly re-shaping the political landscape of the Central Coast.
This is the result of intense organizing, alliance building, and the use of new technologies to reach out to voters. Through economic and environmental justice community campaigns, the California Calls Anchor, CAUSE, has built an army of grassroots leaders, both young and old, to mobilize voters year-round. From farm workers to college students to struggling young families, the new face of the Central Coast electorate is paving the way to a new future for all of California.
