WHO WE ARE
To ensure those most impacted by social inequities are equipped to shape the solutions necessary for a socially just Sacramento.
A Sacramento that uses a social justice lens for all political decision-making and makes wealth, opportunities, and privileges accessible to all.
Centering civic opportunities on those most impacted by injustice, disinvestment and inequality to foster the fair and just distribution of wealth, opportunities, and privileges within society so that all benefit equitably.
Enhancing the capacity of those most impacted by the issues – yet furthest from decision making – to have adequate access to current, well-researched, and community-based information that impacts their everyday lives.
Engaging everyday people to grow their social justice knowledge and mobilize individual and collective civic participation through tools, information, resources and opportunities.
Actively rejecting the notion that critical decisions and vision rests with a few at the top, believing in the collective, and providing a seat at the table for all voices to be heard.
Demystifying local government practices by streamlining tools, research and information. Helping to hold public and elected officials accountable and engaged in an open, two-way forum in which information, decisions, and actions are accessible to all.
