San Diego, CA – Neighborhood Legislature, a non-partisan grassroots organization dedicated to a structural reform of California’s Legislature, announces a donation of $1 Million to support the organization’s College Fellowship and Empowered Communities Organizing Programs.

“This donation will help our organization continue to educate citizens about the change that communities across California deserve and deeply desire”, said Neighborhood Legislature CEO, Lawrence Green.  

The Neighborhood Legislature Empowered Communities Fellowship Program is designed to provide students with a hands-on educational experience building and executing cutting-edge campaigns. The program is grounded in the belief that our political process should empower communities- not exclude them. Through periodic campaign training sessions facilitated by top-tier campaign veterans, students chosen for the Fellowship Program will be equipped with a variety of leadership skills and campaign strategies. We will also provide participants with the opportunity to apply these skills and strategies by running their own local outreach educational campaigns sponsored by the Neighborhood Legislature.

“At a time where we see and feel the impact of special interest money controlling our legislative agenda and squeezing out the voices of communities, our organization is excited to use this generous donation to empower and educate Californians about the exciting pathways to reform our system”, said Neighborhood Legislature CEO, Lawrence Green.

The $1 Million donation will help fund many of the organizational positions that are currently open at the Neighborhood Legislature.  For more information about job opportunities, visit
