About CCLI

CCLI is an educational program designed for local government elected officials who are looking to run for state office. 

The program is designed to give local elected officials a broad, in-depth understanding of critical issues facing cities and the state, as well as the history and importance of local government in California. CCLI also works to demonstrate tools officials will need to succeed if they progress into the State Legislature. The program also provides the opportunity to develop lasting bonds among our state’s rising leaders. Alumni of the program include Sen. Alex Padilla (D- Pacoima), former Assembly Members Fiona Ma (D- San Francisco) and Anthony Portantino (D-Pasadena), and Assembly Members Curt Hagman (R-Chino Hills), Roger Hernandez (D-West Covina) and Das Williams (D-Santa Barbara).
