Power in Alliance

Individuals and organizations united for positive change.

Connect with others.
Bring your organization to the table.
Build community power for the common good.

Our regional area is typically underdeveloped and politically unorganized, so members of Catalina’s List developed a capacity-building project with the Progressive Alliance of the Inland Empire.  The goals of the Progressive Alliance are to serve as a connection hub for progressive leaders; small and large community organizations; groups; and non-profit service organizations to support their contributions in the context of a larger movement of justice, empowerment and peace.

Members of the Progressive Alliance help to sustain the organizational work in a co-operative model - sharing resources and tools in order to maximize our combined impact and towards a collaborative effort in the movement for economic, environmental, social and racial justice.

    Who is moving to Highland?

    Last night's the Highland City Council Meeting was cancelled, because, get this:  there was no city business to be done. No business for the Highland City Council. A crowd of mobile home owners who are asking the Council to consider adopting a Mobile Home Rent Stabilization Ordinance (as other cities in the county have done) showed up only to find the meeting cancellation notice on the door.  Current Mayor Penny Lilburn who recently lamented the "division" on the Council in a speech at a Republican Women's luncheon, has, in no uncertain terms, wished the residents luck with their pursuit but stated that Rent Stabilization "aka rent control" is not an issue that the Council will address.  She solved that problem.  No planning for the future needed to happen. No city employees needed to report on anything nor be recognized for their good work. The most pressing issues that neighbors are concerned about including homelessness, infrastructure, housing affordability, long-term fiscal viability, partnerships with education, senior services, activities calendar, and more? All solved. In the same speech mentioned above, Mayor Lilburn said that it can cost the City of Highland $10,000 to break up a homeless encampment. No mention of whether any of those homeless folks were previously priced out of their mobile homes. Sounds like paradise.
