South Sacramento is one of eight communities that took part in "Communities Creating Racial Equity," an initiative by Everyday Democracy to help communities deepen and sustain community change on issues around racial equity.
In a community with no ethnic majority, South Sacramento's Committee Addressing Racial Equity (CARE) has brought all kinds of people together in dialogues to explore ways of eliminating racism. Following a spring 2009 action forum, participants identified action goals and formed teams to take on racism in their neighborhoods. One of the action goals is to ensure accurate and fair media coverage of South Sacramento.
