California Charter Schools Association (CCSA) Advocates is the political and advocacy companion organization to CCSA. CCSA Advocates is committed to building and sustaining a favorable policy environment at the state and local level for California’s charter schools, which are free, public, and open to all. We strive to enhance public discourse about charter public schools in California and increase awareness about the movement's contributions through collective action, leadership development, and candidate training and support.

Unfortunately, charter public schools remain under attack in Sacramento. Special interests utilize their considerable resources to protect their privileges at the expense of our students, families, and communities. CCSA Advocates stands up and fights back, making a positive difference in local and statewide elections.

District & County School Board Races
• CCSA Advocates is committed to reigning in over-regulation and other unsound authorizing practices through the endorsement and election of thoughtful school board members who employ evidence-based decision-making under the law.

Legislative Races
• CCSA Advocates endorses and supports legislative candidates committed to protecting charter schools as a viable option for students, families, and teachers.

Statewide Ballot Measures & Funding Initiatives
• CCSA Advocates monitors and advocates for and against ballot measures and state bonds that impact the charter public school sector.

Local Funding Initiatives
• CCSA Advocates has worked with school boards and district administration to ensure charters are treated equitably under local funding initiatives.

If you are interested in getting more involved in the work of CCSA Advocates, please contact Gregory McGinity, Executive Director of CCSA Advocates at gmcginity@ccsaadvocates.org.
