CCWA History and Mission Statement

The Chicano Correctional Workers Association, CCWA was formed in 1972 by California Department of Corrections Hispanic employees, who were concerned about under-representation of Latinos within the Department. CCWA dedicated itself to being an advocate for equal representation of Hispanics as well as the pursuit of upward mobility from it’s inception until the present.

CCWA has grown into an organization with a combined force of over 30 chapters and a membership total of more than 2,300 statewide. Over the years, CCWA has established itself as a General Non-Profit Corporation, registered within the Department of Personnel Administration as a “Bona Fide Employee Association” and the California State Personnel Board as a “Professional Organization”.

CCWA continues to enjoy a good working relationship with the Youth and Adult Correctional Agency (YACA) , California Department of Corrections (CDC), Equal Employment Opportunity Office (EEO) as well as government representatives and officials. Emphasizing cooperative regular meetings with Agency, the Department, and other government officials ensures positive dialogue in resolving common issues and concerns.

In order to continue to represent the motto of “Somos Familia” (We are Family), CCWA has for many years been open to all ethnic groups and welcomes all persons.

Those who believe in equality, justice and upward mobility for all qualified and well prepared persons regardless of age, race, sex, color, religion, national origin, political affiliation, ancestry, marital status, sexual orientation and disability are CCWA member material.

To this end, CCWA and it’s members continue to lobby and advocate for better training and more opportunities for employees in the California Department of Corrections.

CCWA has been and continues to be the fastest growing organization in State service. The organization has sponsored annual training conferences, workshops and seminars to expand the knowledge, skills and professionalism of Hispanics and others in the Criminal Justice System.
