Sacramento, California has a very unique opportunity to A.C.T.to End Racism this 170th Anniversary of the California Gold Rush
On April 3-5, 2018 the National Council of the Churches of Christ in the USA and our partners will gather in Washington, D.C. for a historic event to launch its Truth and Racial Justice Initiative.

Globally, we mark 50 years since the assassination of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. on April 4, 1968.

April 5, we commit to do our part to eradicate the entrenched racism that grips the United States and paralyzes our ability to see every human being as equal.

The City, County of Sacramento and Greater Sacramento Region that host the California State Capitol has unique historic challenges to lead the way in truth-telling, leading to actions that right the wrongs, and, with God’s grace, bring healing and wholeness to all people, and unity to our Golden State of California.

April 5, 2018, as part of the National Day of Advocacy and Action, we help launch our California journey toward truth and reconciliation, A.C.T. to End Racism.

AWAKEN ourselves to the truth that racism is ever-present, deeply rooted in American culture, and profoundly damaging to our communities.

CONFRONT racism, speak truth to ourselves, our communities and institutions, and stand against injustice.

TRANSFORM the hearts, minds, and behaviors of people and structures that shape society.

Building on the California Farmer Equity Act, our California Department of Food and Agriculture, in collaboration with the United States Department of Agriculture is poised to help lead growing partnerships to A.C.T. to End Racism this 170th Anniversary of the California Gold Rush.
