The California Participation Project – a project of Community Partners – is dedicated to expanding the role of nonprofits in voting and elections. The California Participation Project provides information, resources and tools for 501(c)(3) nonprofits so that they can integrate civic engagement into their on-going work.  The California Participation Project is a partner of Nonprofit VOTE.
