The Project

This project will take a systematic approach WCLP to enforce California's safety net statute. I will first conduct a county-by-county analysis of prevailing practices. Then I will initiate advocacy to remedy illegalities. Finally, I will coordinate a statewide coalition and host a policy summit to ensure my work will continue. This project will energize advocates to take a closer look at county practices, remedy illegal policies, and increase the number of needy who receive aid and care from their counties.
