The Campaign’s partner organizations include the Public Health Advocates (formerly California Center for Public Health Advocacy) and the League of California Cities. Established in 1999, Public Health Advocates (PHA) raises awareness about critical public health issues and mobilizes communities to establish state and local policies to improve the health of Californians. PHA works toward a vision of California communities in which physical, social, and economic conditions support the health and well-being of all residents, and in which health disparities no longer exist.
Founded in 1898, the League of California Cities is an association of over 400 California cities. The League’s mission is to expand and protect local control for cities through education and advocacy in order to enhance the quality of life for all Californians. The League holds an annual membership conference, institutes for elected and appointed officials, regional meetings, legislative action days, and other gatherings for elected and appointed officials.
