The Central Valley Social Justice Pipeline is a long term leadership development program to prepare youth (18-35) to run for elected office or to work on electoral campaigns and get involved with local commissions and boards that affect public policy, in the Central Valley of California, from Sacramento County to Kern County. CVSJP will focus on educating youth on social justice issues, how they can be addressed, learn how our local government is structured in each respective community, and how we can get involved and implement policies to create sustainable institutional change. The program will provide additional advanced programming that will focus on getting interested individuals to learn the basics of running for electoral office or working on electoral campaigns as staff for candidates.
