The Central Valley Multilingual Consortium is composed of English learner advocates from school-based and community organizations across the counties of San Joaquin, Stanislaus, Merced, Madera, Fresno, Kings, Tulare, and Kern. We are researchers, teacher educators, teachers, administrators, school board members and local leaders. The purpose of the consortium is to support advocates in building individual and community advocacy to be responsive to the needs of Central Valley English learner students.

The objectives of the consortium are to create alignment between policy, practice, and research in the Central Valley and statewide, centralize the research, policy and practice resources, influence and shape the public narrative to reflect the diversity and assets of English learners in K-12 and through higher education, and to diversify the representation of English learner advocates across the Central Valley.
