The California State Alliance of YMCAs actively monitors and advocates on California legislative, budgetary, and regulatory matters on behalf of California's YMCAs and the communities we strengthen. Our 2023 advocacy priorities are focused on the health and safety of local communities, robust funding to support early learning and out of school time enrichment for California's children and youth, and matters impacting the sustainability of our local Ys.

We are currently compiling legislation that we will actively work on or monitor, as guided by the Alliance’s Public Policy Committee. Note the list created does not reflect our full suite of advocacy priorities.

For more details, please contact our Director of Public Policy, Christina Marcellus, at or Chief Executive Officer, Kris Lev-Twombly, at For an overview of our standing advocacy priorities, please review our Policy Framework.
