Our Mission

Our Mission:
The Sacramento Environmental Justice Coalition was formed to address health and
environmental inequities among poor and marginalized communities of the greater
Sacramento region. Through community organizing efforts, the organization seeks
partnerships with faith-based communities, nonprofits, civic groups, and individuals
committed to addressing inequities and environmental Justice issues.

Community Outreach

Through one-to-one conversations, house meetings, workshops, and regional events, the SacEJC aims to build grassroots leadership and create awareness of the negative
effects redlining and structural racism have had on the health and well-being of the poor and people of color.  We define equity and inclusion as planning and implementing concrete outcomes
that reverse years of marginalization and build power and a democratic voice where there is none.
