The California Catholic Conference (CCC)

is the official public policy voice of the Catholic Church in California.  We advocate with policy makers and the public to advance the Catholic vision of human life and dignity, the good society, and concern for those who are poor and vulnerable.  We educate Catholics and the general public.  We empower Catholics to put their faith into action consistent with Catholic teaching.
