Who We Are: The Congress of California Seniors (CCS), founded in 1977, is a statewide nonprofit advocacy organization and is registered with the IRS as a 501(c)(4) California corporation. Our board of directors is comprised of senior leaders and advocates from among the Congress of California Seniors’ 105 affiliated organizations. The organization is funded through membership dues, contributions from affiliated organizations, individual donations and corporations.
What We Do: The Congress of California Seniors focuses its primary attention on legislative and consumer issues that impact older adults. The CCS education and advocacy program has proved to be an effective tool in influencing public policy decisions made by the state legislature and other state officials. CCS analyzes and rates all state legislators on their voting record related to key senior issues and publishes the “Friends and Foes of Seniors Legislative Report Card.”
