Welcome to the African American Caucus Website

Welcome

Here you will find information about the members and activities of the California Democratic Party’s African American Caucus including information about our policy priorities, our history and the services we provide.

We really hope that we can inspire you to attend our meetings – no obligation whatsoever, but of course we will try to interest you in our Caucus membership. It’s only $25.00 per year, and we have a lot of fun while we educate and inform the citizens of California. No, you do not have to live here in order to join.

Please feel free to contact us with your thoughts and suggestions, as they are valuable to us.

New CSBA briefs help governing boards focus on African-American students

unnamed

As part of a new governance brief series designed to shed light on the educational needs of California’s diverse student population, CSBA has released two new briefs focused on African-American students. The goal of the series is to describe challenges that must be addressed to ensure that all students have an equal opportunity to achieve their potential and highlight schools, districts and programs that are successfully addressing these challenges and closing achievement gaps — and thus serve as guideposts for broader efforts.

The first issue, Demographics and Achievement of California’s African-American Students, takes findings from a number of reports and data sources (such as the Education Trust-West’s Black Minds Matter report), and focuses on the conditions of African-American students in California’s K-12 public schools.

The second issue, Closing Opportunity and Achievement Gaps for African-American Students, presents considerations for board members and state, county and district leaders to close gaps by offering best practice examples of successful initiatives, programs and partnerships throughout the state.
