The CCEP was established to engage public dialogue on representative governance in California. CCEP research is intended to inform and empower a wide range of policy and organizing efforts, supporting equity and well-being throughout the state.
Civic engagement is critical to addressing disparities in state and regional patterns of well-being and opportunity, including outcomes in education, health and employment. The CCEP plays a lead role in improving the quality and quantity of publicly available civic engagement data by collecting and curating data from a broad range of sources for public access and use.
A key focus of CCEP data analysis is identifying disparities and opportunities in civic participation across place and population in the state. CCEP research also helps explore non-traditional measures of civic engagement, particularly among groups historically underrepresented in our civic and political institutions.
