The Center for Community Economic Research (CCER) acts as a bridge between researchers and community groups throughout the Bay Area and California, providing community groups with the opportunity to draw on academic knowledge around economic issues, ranging from the role of immigrants in California's economy to analyzing the state budget crisis. We also take advantage of the University's access to the Information Superhighway by putting online the resources of community groups who otherwise could not afford to have a presence in this emerging new media. In all of our work, we strive to give community groups the kind of university support which they desperately need in their fight to empower people around economic issues and to save our democracy.
