Sacramento is a city of “doers”. Doers of the Gold Rush, doers of the railroad, doers of a world class urban forest. Starting in the early years, Sacramento’s urban forest grew under the vision and leadership of numerous people.
Explore with us this fascinating and exciting journey. A journey that culminates in a first of a kind partnership that serves as an example for other communities throughout the world.
This is the story of how trees saved Sacramento and how the people of Sacramento saved their trees.

From SURJ Sacramento:
SURJ Sacramento’s next Community Meeting is Wednesday, April 25th from 6:00pm-8:30pm at the Unitarian Universalist Society, 2425 Sierra Blvd in Sacramento. Potluck and orientation for any newcomers begins at 6:00pm, and the general meeting starts at 6:30pm. Our meetings are all ages. Community meetings are held quarterly; we hope you will join us to learn more about our chapter and to get involved with local racial justice work.
During the meeting, we will discuss the work that our working groups (Education, Mobilizing, Art & Communication) have been working on, as well as projects that the chapter has been workings and will be working on in the coming months.
Campaigns we are working on:
1) Justice for Stephon Clark, a 22-year old black man and father of two killed by Sacramento police on March 18. He was unarmed and shot in his back while standing in his grandparents’ backyard.
2) Housing and racial justice: we are supporting the campaign for rent control and justice cause for eviction.
3) Education: ongoing work around educating people about white supremacy and movements for racial justice, including our Study and Action groups, a 7-week class.
About SURJ Sacramento: Our role as part of a multi-racial movement is to undermine white people’s support for white supremacy and to help build a racially just society. Through community organizing, mobilizing, and education, SURJ Sacramento moves white people in our community to act as part of a multi-racial majority for justice with passion and accountability. We work to connect people across varying neighborhoods and backgrounds, while supporting and collaborating with local and national racial justice organizing efforts. As a chapter, we particularly value our relationships with community members of color. We work under the leadership and guidance of these groups and are accountable to their efforts. SURJ Sacramento provides a space to build relationships, skills and political analysis to act for change through a non-violent, intersectional and community-oriented approach.
