CCEP in the Media

The California Civic Engagement Project (CCEP) is a non-partisan civic engagement research and outreach initiative for the state of California. Founded and directed by Mindy Romero, it is part of the USC Price School of Public Policy in Sacramento. 

The CCEP provides data and research on electoral and wider civic engagement issues throughout California. It is a go-to resource for legislators, public agencies, advocates, journalists and researchers. Areas of focus and expertise include electoral reforms, voting disparities, the youth vote, the Latino vote, Asian-American voting patterns, the California electorate, and direct democracy. CCEP’s research has been featured in major news outlets, including the New York Times, National Public Radio, Univision, Washington Post, Los Angeles Times, San Francisco Chronicle, Politico and the Huffington Post.

CCEP research has contributed to public discourse on voter participation through its extensive media coverage. Director Mindy Romero is frequently interviewed by state and national news outlets for stories related to elections, electoral reforms, and inclusive civic engagement. Since 2012, the CCEP has had over 200 media mentions.
