Kings and BLM Sacramento Join Build. Black. Coalition to Help Transform Sacramento
Sacramento Organizes in Wake of Stephon Clark Killing
To support transformational change for Black communities in Sacramento, the Build. Black. Coalition and Black Lives Matter Sacramento announced they are creating a multi-year plan in partnership with the Sacramento Kings to support the education of young people and to provide the workforce preparation and economic development efforts needed to truly #BuildBlackFutures. As part of their commitment to the goals of the Build. Black. Coalition, a group of Sacramento community leaders who have organized in the wake of the Stephon Clark killing by Sacramento police, the Sacramento Kings will create an education fund for Clark's children.

"This fund cannot fix the issues that led to the death of their father, but it will secure opportunities for their futures while the family and the city grapples with healing." an NBA press release for the partnership announced, adding that the new partnership with the Build. Black. Coalition and Black Lives Matter Sacramento will be an "unprecedented effort to fundamentally transform Black communities through deep investment in Black youth in Sacramento."

The effort to support and lift up Black youth begins this Friday, March 30 from 5:00 to 8:00 p.m. at the South Sacramento Christian Church (7710 Stockton Boulevard).
