Sac Social Justice PolitiCorps is all about collective social change through public policy. Our Spotlight feature lifts up those who are making moves for social justice on the local stage. That said, we want to take a moment to acknowledge those on the ground who work daily in direct service to community members experiencing the challenges resulting from the oppressive systems at work in our community, State, and Country.
One such direct-service hero is Ms. Jackie Rose, Founder and CEO of the Rose Family Creative Empowerment Center.
For more than two decades, Ms. Rose has dedicated herself to the Meadowview community in south Sacramento. She has her pulse on the heartbeat of her neighborhood and is known by community members, elected officials, and everyone in between as the go-to resource for everything from food and clothing to after-school and mentorship programming at local schools, to crisis response and strengths-based family intervention. If Ms. Rose can’t do it, she will connect you with someone who can.
Thank you to Ms. Rose and the countless direct service providers like her who hold it down daily for our children, families, seniors, and community members. We appreciate you!
