Our Team

The Concrete Team is our neutral “space” used to connect CDI fellowship graduates, groups, and individuals already serving their communities and provide them with tools that will further Equip, Empower, Educate, and Engage folks on the ground with what they need to promote change. The Concrete Team is the driving force to our advocacy work.

  • Some of the policy areas The Concrete Team has worked on are Prop 47, the nation’s largest record-change effort helping to end barriers for hundreds of thousands of Californians, AB392, which established new standards for use of deadly force by police officers in California, and Prop 17, which restored the right to vote after completion of a prison term. We also worked to defeat Prop 20, which would have toughened sentencing in criminal cases, and more.
  • CDI builds capacity within marginalized communities, with an emphasis on leadership development within the Prop 17 population which restored voting rights to 50,000 Californians on parole, including over 8,000 in San Joaquin County.
