ACTION ALERT: Attend Upcoming City Council CBAO Workshop on Feb 27 or Submit a Letter Sign-On
Dear Sacramento Investment Without Displacement (SIWD) Allies,
Please attend and/or send an organizational representative to the upcoming City Council Community Benefits Agreement Ordinance (CBAO) workshop happening Tuesday February 27, 2024 at 2pm at City Hall. SIWD partners will be attending this workshop and are calling all our coalition partners and community members’ voices to have a presence at this meeting.
If you are unable to attend or send a representative, please consider signing on to the SIWD letter (linked below) and/or submit your own letter on your organization’s letterhead by next Monday February 26, 2024.
See below for more details and steps you can take today.
WHAT: Attend the Upcoming City Council Workshop or Sign on to the SIWD Letter (see attached)
WHEN: Tuesday, February 27, 2024 at 2pm
WHERE: City Hall, 915 I St, Sacramento, CA 95814
WHY: The Sacramento Investment Without Displacement coalition has spent the last four years working with the City of Sacramento to establish a Community Benefits Agreement Ordinance for Council consideration. In the most recent and updated CBAO (view the posting here on the City’s CBAO website) most of SIWD’s demands to ensure that community voice is at the table have NOT been met nor included in the CBAO drafts. We are asking our SIWD partners, our trusted messengers, serving our most vulnerable, to help push these demands to be included in the City’s CBAO. Your leadership and support is critical to establishing a true CBAO that will include community voices at the decision-making table and ensure that benefits come back to the community in future developments.
Steps to attend the workshop or sign on to our SIWD letter:
- If you or someone from your organization will be attending the workshop and would like to join our SIWD partners for an in-person prep lunch/rally from 12:30-1:30pm right before the workshop at the Civic Thread office, please RSVP at this link here. We will walk over to city hall as a group and attend the CBAO workshop.
- Review the SIWD template letter and sign on at this link OR submit your own letter via your organization’s letterhead by 5pm Monday, February 26, 2024.
