Black Lives Matter Sacramento is committed to pushing the line against systemic racism, state and local government sanctioned violence, and the violence and terrorism of Sacramento’s Black communities. Whether that comes in the form of rising rents and homelessness, low wages and poverty, mass incarceration, police terrorism, or murder by law enforcement.
We fight for all Black lives - whether they be African, Caribbean, African American, Afro-Latinx, Afro-Asian, etc. – who are enduring sanctioned violence in the form of the denial of basic human rights, police brutality, and discriminatory policies that unfairly target communities of color.
We fight for all Black lives - affirming the lives of Black queer and trans folks, disabled folks, Black-undocumented folks, folks with records, women and all Black lives along the gender spectrum.
We fight for all Black lives - centering those that have been marginalized within Black communities through institutionalization, gang databases, or simply fitting the description that is often profiled, pulled over, and criminalized with broken glass laws (windows tinted, probation searches, etc…)
Black Lives Matter Sacramento is committed to pushing the line to impact laws, policies, and ordinances that lean into community power, government oversight, and eventually the abolition of this system. Creating structures within community where the people are the resources to the functioning of community protection and sustainability.
Lastly, Black Lives Matter Sacramento is committed to bringing joy, healing, and safe spaces into Black communities that are the most impacted and terrorized by sanctioned violence, and intra community violence.
