The Consortium for English Learner Success is a regional collective created by an advisory committee and the California Community Foundation to uplift what we know about good policies, programs, and practices for English learners. Today, the Consortium is composed of nearly 100 civil rights, policy, research, philanthropic, educator and community-based organizations working to strengthen the prosperity of California and Los Angeles County by advocating for an educational system that fully supports the needs and embraces the assets of DLL and EL students.

Californians Together (CalTog) is a statewide advocacy coalition of powerful organizations from all segments of the education community including teachers, administrators, board members, parents, and civil rights non-profit groups. Our member organizations come together around the goal of better educating over 1.4 million English Learners by improving California's schools and promoting equitable educational policy.
The coalition aims for an educational system that is funded and structured so every child will have full access to a high quality 21st century education and will graduate from our public schools fully prepared for success in college and career and full civic participation. Each student will achieve or possess cross-cultural skills and knowledge, connections to their families and communities, informational and technological literacy, communication and literacy skills in more than one language.
See the full list of coalition members on CalTog's website.
