We are a network of advocates, consumers, and allies working together for strong health care and human services in California. We are statewide, diverse, and grassroots. Our network includes people who care about health care, home care for seniors and disabled people, emergency food and food stamps, domestic violence shelters, independent living centers for people with disabilities, child abuse and neglect prevention, women’s health care, community health clinics, AIDS prevention and care, and more — in other words, the basic human needs we all share.

What We Do
We have come together to act on shared priorities — right now, we’re advocating for a “Family Recovery Plan” in the new State Budget to focus on creating jobs, building a safety net when jobs aren’t there, and maximizing federal funds. The alternative — continued deep cuts to families and vital investments in people — will only make the recession longer and family suffering harsher.
