State & National
Structural barriers to SCOPE's mission and goals extend beyond the local level to state and national policy and decision making. For example, California's eroding tax base and federal policies that emphasize military over domestic spending aggravate conditions in communities already plagued by poverty and disinvestment.
To challenge these trends, SCOPE has incubated and led the formation of the California State Alliance and the Pushback Network - state and federal strategies designed to win progressive public policy and increase participatory democracy by those pushed to the political margins. SCOPE's best practices and methodologies, particularly in the areas of civic and voter engagement, serve as models for these movements. SCOPE engages in strategic planning and institutional building for both entities and provides training and capacity building assistance to the Alliance's and Network's member organizations.
