Communities for a New California Action Fund (CNC Action) is a left-of-center advocacy organization active in California’s San Joaquin Valley, Central Coast, Coachella Valley, and Imperial Valley regions. CNC Action is the political advocacy arm of the nonprofit Communities for a New California Education Fund. [1]

Background

Founded in 2011 by Pablo Rodriguez, CNC Action promotes left-of-center economic, social, and environmental policies within the state of California, primarily through voter engagement initiatives in the San Joaquin and Coachella Valleys. [2] [3]

CNC Action targets infrequent and unregistered voters through phone banking and canvassing in order to increase voter turnout, especially among foreign-born voters who make up a large percentage of the San Joaquin and Coachella Valley. [4] [5] CNC Action claims to have engaged 150,000 voters in 2016, 200,000 voters in 2018, and 250,000 voters in 2020. [6]

CNC Action is the political advocacy arm of the Communities for a New California Education Fund, a nonprofit organization that promotes similar voter registration and turnout initiatives. [7]

Advocacy

Aside from its work on voter initiatives, CNC Action has promoted a left-of-center policy agenda. CNC Action supports a number of left-of-center social policy initiatives, including expanding government-funded healthcare programs and banning pesticides. [8]

CNC Action has promoted Proposition 16, a 2020 ballot initiative which would amend the California state constitution in order to allow government institutions to provide preferential treatment to employees on the basis of race and sex, repealing a 1996 proposition that banned this treatment. [9]

CNC Action has also advocated for left-of-center financial policies, including supporting California Proposition 15 to increase property taxes on businesses operating in the state. [10] Aside from promoting tax increases, CNC Action has also advocated for increased government spending on local parks and public-school recreational programs. [11]
