Who we are

Sacramento ACT is a powerful multi-racial, multi-faith organization advocating a transformation of our community rooted in our shared faith values.  We equip ordinary people to effectively identify and change conditions to create justice and equity.

Sacramento ACT’s members include over 56 congregations, schools and neighborhood groups, representing 60,000 families in Sacramento County.

Sacramento ACT organizes to create a more just and fair community for everyone in the Sacramento region, with a particular focus on communities of color that have experienced historical discrimination and disinvestment. Our organizing is grounded in the conviction that equity—just and fair inclusion in society—must drive public policy.

At the center of our model of congregation-based community organizing is a belief in the potential for transformation—of people, institutions, and our larger culture. This belief stems directly from ACT’s roots in faith communities, and radiates throughout the organization, influencing the way ACT relates to public officials, to community members, and to one another.

 

Sacramento ACT is an affiliate of PICO National Network and a member of PICO California.
