The CNP is staffed entirely by volunteers. Meet some of our members.

Theo Slater

Theo is an attorney who lives and works in Sacramento. He joined the CNP out of his desire to build a party focused on building a better future for California – not serving the interests of big donors. He is committed to building an organization that can serve and represent California’s diverse communities.

Sarah Farrell

Sarah was born and raised here in California and is a true California girl! Sarah is a paralegal and lives in the North Bay region of the Bay Area with her husband and 4 dogs.
