Communities for a New California Action Fund Aims to Ramp Up Recall Election Engagement Across California
Employing manifold strategies and uniting a diversity of community stakeholders, CNC will embolden voters to protect California values
Sacramento, CA — Communities for a New California Action Fund (CNC) is working across California, with a focus on Central Valley and Coachella Valley families, to galvanize voters to defend their vision for the Golden State by partaking in the upcoming recall election. The last day to vote in the recall election will be September 14th, 2021.
With less than nine weeks until Election Day, voters will have to plan how to cast their ballots, decide their positions, and learn the nuances of how to vote in a recall election. “At stake is the growth and progress that California has worked to achieve. We have gone from budget deficits in the billions to surplus in the billions of dollars,” explained Pablo Rodriguez, CNC Action Fund founding Executive Director. “Will we continue forward, or will we roll back protections to the environment, to immigrant families, and COVID-19? That is the challenge before us.”
CNC will engage and mobilize voters for the fast-approaching recall election. Voters will be targeted in rural battleground regions of California. Engagement strategies will include digital voter messaging, door-knocking, support for community voter registration events, as well as non-partisan virtual partner-CBO town halls to highlight what's at stake for our rural families.
Rodriguez reflected, “Our vote is power. There is no room for complacency in the next two months. Voters in the Central Valley and Coachella Valley may be the tipping point for the recall election."
Communities for a New California Action fund is fighting to achieve public policy that is socially, economically and environmentally just for California families. We educate and motivate voters who have historically been left out of policy decisions impacting our schools, neighborhoods, and their families.
