Overview

Community Partners

The union has partnered with numerous progressive community organizations that share common goals and philosophies with the Federation. By combining forces, CFT and its community partners have achieved significant victories, including passage of Proposition 30 in 2012, the voter-approved ballot measure that provided more funding for public services. Similarly, these coalitions helped extend those taxes four years later when voters approved Proposition 55.
