OUR FEDERATIONS

PICO California is the largest multi-racial faith-based community-organizing network in the state connecting and leveraging the power of the people to impact broad systemic change. Motivated by various prophetic traditions, we ground our civic action and demands for change in moral and ethical principles. We use a relationship-based organizing model to develop leadership and build capacity for civic engagement in communities throughout California. 

Established in 1994, PICO California organizes in 73 cities, 35 school districts, and in more than seventy-five percent of the state's Senate and Assembly districts.  We are deeply connected with communities through congregations and religions institutions and we work in coalition across racial, economic, ethnic, and religious lines. We are comprised of 13 non-profit organizations made up of 480 interfaith congregations, schools, and neighborhood institutions representing 450,000 families. We bring our local federations together throughout California to affect meaningful budget and policy change at the state level.
