California Advocacy Network

The California Advocacy Network is a statewide movement involving nearly 1,000 organizations who serve more than 95 percent of California’s population. Members include community-based organizations, aging and disability service and advocacy groups, and consumer and provider organizations–all of which work to transform care for older adults and people with disabilities so that it is easier to access and understand, more coordinated, and more responsive to people’s unique needs.

Learn more about the Network’s core California Collaborative for Long Term Services and Supports in Sacramento and the individual Regional Coalitions.
