Center for Community Advocacy


The Center for Community Advocacy (CCA) trains farmworkers to form and lead neighborhood-based tenant and health committees or comités that, themselves, advocate for improved housing and health conditions for farmworkers and other low-income families in Monterey County and Santa Cruz County.

The Big Idea

Advance Farmworker Leadership! Please support the Center for Community Advocacy (CCA) in the development and capacitation of farmworkers and low-income families to become community leaders, also known as Promotores Comunitarios. CCA’s Promotores Comunitarios advocate to improve housing and health conditions, while also expanding economic opportunities in their lives. At CCA, community members have an opportunity to earn while they learn themes such as health, education, housing advocacy, youth leadership and development, assisting other community members to access resources and services, facilitating meetings, and much more! Importantly, CCA’s Promotores Comunitarios strengthened the social fabric of Monterey County through alliances, and the continual development of grassroots leadership. Please support CCA and its homegrown leadership!

Siendo una líder de la comunidad has sido muy gratificante y he crecido mucho como persona, y he obtenido mucho aprendizaje de toda mi comunidad.
