Who We Are


Step Up California is a bipartisan coalition  working together to reduce poverty in California. The Step Up California Resolution to Cut Poverty is our guiding document.

The vision is clear: All Californians can work together towards eliminating poverty.

The mission is direct: Create the will among leaders, organizations, businesses, faith communities, the public sector, and individuals to step up and do what they can to address the causes of poverty and work together to break the cycle of poverty for the future.

The goal is just: Eliminate poverty, recognizing that this will take time and a strong commitment to take the steps necessary to ensure that every California resident can secure the food, housing, healthcare, education and income they need to live and be self-sufficient.
