Close the gap CA, which will kick off in Los Angeles on June 1, is a California-wide recruiting campaign to find talented, progressive women to run and win seats in the California legislature in 2014 and 2016. Over the past 10 years, women's representation in the state's legislature has declined from 30% to 25%; and women of color dropped from 44% of women legislators to just 32% today. Given nearly 50% of Assembly and Senate seats will open up in the state in 2014 and 2016, the campaign is looking for progressive women to vie for the open seats. Register for the Launch Briefing.
