Black Lives Matter Sacramento & ANSWER Sacramento

Elected officials and public servants of the city/county of Sacramento have been getting away with pushing their own agendas, ignoring their constituents needs, avoiding transparency and accountability, and brushing very large problems under the rug.

Our law enforcement agencies brutalize and kill folks with no consequences.

Our city officials molest and sexually assault women and children with no consequences.

Our council members ignore us when we are trying to utilize our democratic processes, with no consequences.

Our public servants ot the court watch it all happen and set no precedents that enforce the value of Black lives.

Our federal elected officials do and say absolutely nothing as if these things are not happening on their watch.

Our state elected democrat officials do and say absolutely nothing, while our states republican officials advocate to continue to keep us in our boxes with no people power.

As members of this city/county, we all go through all of the processes that are given to us to make changes in our city. We get looked down on, beaten, blatantly ignored, and sometimes killed with no explanation to our families.
