and nonprofit service providers are unable
to keep up with demands for assistance during good times. Our
deteriorating economy and state budget
cuts have resulted in a reduction of vital
safety net services at a time when more and
more people are struggling to make ends meet.
Step Up California calls upon all
Californians to Step Up and
help reduce poverty in our great state.
Californians can take steps on behalf of
the sick, dying, the
disabled, working poor families,
the unemployed, and those affected by
hunger, homelessness, poor education, low
wages, and lack of access to healthcare.
we can reclaim
our Golden State as a land of
opportunity and compassion, with a renewed
commitment to take care of those who need
assistance in order to survive.
