Over the last several years, CAPE’s influence in state and local government has risen. Our 2,700+ membership is representative of the diverse population of Los Angeles County. We’re left, right and center, of different ethnic and religious backgrounds, and are racially diverse. Politicians see this and value our support and opinions.

Our CAPE Board of Directors reflects that diversity as well. As a result, we do not make hasty decisions when it comes to endorsing candidates and supporting legislation or items on the Board of Supervisors agenda.
