Sacramento Community Land Trust prevents displacement and builds historically discriminated neighborhood power to combat deterioration and market speculation by fostering equitable development for generations to come.
Statement on Global Injustice, Displacement and Power
Sacramento Community Land Trust is dedicated to the continued liberation of communities who have been disproportionately impacted by the global spread of colonial projects, white supremacy, and capitalism.
During these times of awakening, as the suffering of people in the Congo, Sudan, Palestine and others are uplifted on our newsfeeds, we must not turn away. We must be conscious of how disproportionate levels of empathy and news coverage are employed while using our voices to speak truthfully and fearlessly about liberation struggles both near and far.
We recognize that our global struggles for shared community ownership, equitable land use, human rights, environmental justice, and racial justice are interconnected. In uplifting the voices of historically marginalized groups, we urge our communities to educate each other, understand the cycles of displacement, and work together to maximize our collective power and prosperity.
Here in Sacramento, we have inherited the violence of settler-colonialism from the dispossession of the Nisenan, Maidu, Miwok, Me-Wuk and Patwin Wintun peoples to the anti-homeless policies that attack our most vulnerable. We encourage our communities to fight for local liberation, lobby for the de-escalation of violence abroad, and affirm the need of all peoples to have access to housing, healthy culturally relevant food, equitable health outcomes, and freedom from violence in all forms.
With the rise of regional housing insecurity and displacement, we will continue to fight with our partners for affordable, community owned housing until we all are stably and permanently housed. We cannot do this alone, and we will need your continued support to make this vision for the future a reality.
