The CCC4IS is coordinated by a Steering Committee comprised of our Chairperson, John Elfers and two committee chairs. The Community Advisory Board (CAB) meets on the first friday of every month. Our CAB includes representatives from all affiliate organizations. If anyone is interested in attending meetings, receiving a newsletter, or getting involved with CCC4IS sponsored events, please contact us! We always welcome new ideas, effort, and energy!
CCC4IS started as a Community Advisory Board (CAB) to provide guidance on a Social Action Research project initiated by Elizabeth J. Meyer, an Assistant Professor in Cal Poly's School of Education. Initial projects were developed to support the implementation of two new California laws: Seth's Law (bullying prevention) and the FAIR Education Act (curricular inclusion of LGBT people and people with disabilities). When the School Success and Opportunity Act (supporting transgender youth in schools) was passed, it was also incorporated into the work of the coalition. The work of the CAB was so successful, that the members decided to develop the CCC4IS to create self-sustaining, community-based projects that were independent of, but aligned with the original action research project proposed by Dr. Meyer.
