What's the SJPC Report Card?
How to be an
Twice a month, SJPC sends newsletters covering
the latest social-justice related happenings at our
local government public meetings. The meeting items
are categorized into 9 categories:
General Social Justice
Criminal Justice Reform
Throughout, and at the end of each year (from January to July, midterm grade, and January - September, final grade), SJPC’s volunteers collect notes about about motions, votes on motions, comments made during meetings, and other intel about local officials’ activities when they’re not at public meetings. In fall of each year we distribute a survey to the community that informs the grades we assign government officials.
Who is being graded?
Sacramento City Council members &
Sacramento County Board of Supervisors members
Grades are assigned to each official for each individual item, along with a summary justification for the grades. The Report Card goes through multiple layers of review and is the product of collective and collaborative discussion with social justice activists and organizations.
