Immigration issues have attracted significant attention over the past few years as changes in federal policies have ignited debates across the political spectrum. In July 2018, the Bipartisan Policy Center (BPC) and BPC Action published a new report, The New Middle on Immigration Reform, which suggests a consensus set of immigration policies that Americans support is more to the right than many realize. The report is based on a nationwide survey, focus groups, and roundtable discussions. 

But where does California fit into this dialogue? Grantmakers in California, where one in four residents is an immigrant and half the children in the state have a parent who immigrated to the United States, have been working on the issue of immigration for years. California donors have been funding at the local, regionally, or  statewide level, and yet may not be engaged at the federal level when it comes to immigration reform efforts.

But it’s not affecting all communities in the same way, especially when it comes to water management, access to water or the impact of water scarcity on employment and the local economy. The inequities become quickly apparent as you begin to scratch the surface of these issues which are having enormous consequences for the communities oftentimes are most vulnerable.

With 17 State propositions to vote on this November, the idea of studying them all is pretty daunting. So instead, you can listen to some of the smartest nonprofit policy folks in the state discuss the ones most relevant to nonprofits. If you’re only going to be part of one discussion this year on ballot propositions, this is the one to do.
