WHO WE ARE

WE DEFINE SOCIAL JUSTICE AS

as a redistribution of wealth, opportunities, and privileges to those who have not historically benefited from such investments so that we can all do well.

We want Sacramento County to make political decisions that help people who are most vulnerable so that they can do well. This needs to be a priority versus an after-thought!

We want  Sac County to consider historical injustices and make decisions to right those wrongs!

OUR MISSION
To ensure those most impacted by social inequities are equipped to shape the solutions necessary for a socially just Sacramento
OUR VISION
A Sacramento that uses a social justice lens for all political decision-making and makes wealth, opportunities, and privileges accessible to all. 
OUR VALUES

EQUITY

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.

ACCESS

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.

CIVIC PARTICIPATION

Engaging everyday people to grow their social justice knowledge and mobilize individual and collective civic participation through tools, information, resources and opportunities.

COLLECTIVE

DECISION-MAKING

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.

ACCOUNTABILITY

& TRANSPARENCY

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.

SOCIAL JUSTICE ISSUES

Criminal Justice Reform

Abolishing prisons and police; building a transformative/restorative city; addressing the underlying social issues which cause crime. Immediate end to police brutality especially against black people and other oppressed people.

Equitable Housing

Understanding that housing is a human right as opposed to a commodity; advocating for equity and adequate public participation and transparency in development plans; promoting the building of wealth and assets for communities of color through homeownership, community-led innovation, and security and stability for renters.

Health Equity

Everyone has a fair and just opportunity to be healthy, removing all obstacles to health and health care such as poverty, discrimination, unemployment, and lack of housing and safe environments.

Participatory and  Equitable Budgets

Working to provide residents with a voice in how the public's money is spent; making strong efforts to ensure that budget spending is reflective of community needs and priorities.

Education Equity

All students, regardless of circumstances or location, have access to opportunities to succeed in the classroom and beyond.

Environmental Justice

A city/state/nation/world in which no one faces disadvantages in dealing with pollution, disasters, and environmental hazards; no one would need wealth or political connections to protect the well-being of their families and communities.

Prioritizing the needs of community members, especially populations that are susceptible to the effects of widening income inequality; emphasizing building healthy communities in disadvantaged neighborhoods - good schools, healthy food, public transit, nearby employment opportunities, and green space; working to ensure development projects support and uplift the most vulnerable communities to displacement.

Economic Investment Without Displacement

Transparency

Decisions made by elected officials are available and accessible to all & effective forms for comments/concerns (which are to be taken seriously by officials) are available and accessible to all.
