Pollsters agree: the road to a Democratic-controlled Congress is through California. This week, California Donor Table launched Battleground California, the only SuperPAC aimed at winning eight competitive congressional races that will securely position the Democrats to take back the House from two years of Republican control. Battleground California will invest $15 million in priority districts to reach voters of color, who are the key to victory. Learn more in this feature for the New York Times and at Battleground California’s website.

This week, we were honored to host members of the Whole Child Equity Partnership at our offices in Oakland for a communications strategy workshop. This unique collaboration between multi-racial, multi-sector community and statewide organizations, advocates, community organizers, direct service providers, and issue area experts advocate for holistic policies and programs that address all the conditions of a child’s life. After an in-depth Insights phase, we are ready to dig in with the partners to identify the strategies and tactics needed to launch the Partnership, establishing the coalition as a key champion to make California the best state to have, raise, and be a child.
