CAUSE - Central Coast Alliance United for a Sustainable Economy (Santa Barbara)

CAUSE's mission is to build grassroots power to invoke social, economic and environmental justice for the people of California's Central Coast Region through policy research, leadership development, organizing, and advocacy. CAUSE defines the Central Coast Region as the counties of Ventura, Santa Barbara, San Luis Obispo, Santa Cruz, Monterey and San Benito.Through community organizing and policy advocacy, we have passed a local ordinance protecting tenants from eviction by landlords in Santa Barbara County, supported the unionization of in-home support service workers resulting in wage increases and health coverage, and passed five living wage ordinances benefiting thousands of workers among other community victories.
