Pinky I'm Pinky, a passionate community activist dedicated to housing and tenant rights. With deep roots in Richmond, CA, I've proudly called Sacramento home for over two decades. In the last six years as a resident of the Garden Land area, I've been actively involved in tenant rights advocacy, driven by my own experience with eviction and homelessness in 2014. Known as the resourceful housing navigator with distinctive pink hair, I find immense joy in assisting individuals navigate the complex housing system. My unwavering commitment to tenant rights stems from the belief that everyone deserves stable housing, and homelessness should be a thing of the past. I firmly endorse Community Land Trusts (CLT) as a way to give back to our community and ensure affordable housing. With over nine years of volunteer work, I'm resolute in my commitment to fighting for housing equity. I firmly believe that people hold the key to solving our housing crisis, and together, we can reshape the narrative, making housing accessible for all.
We all understand that the Rent is too Damn High. There's more of Us than these Corporations of Bad agendas. We Can Change the Narrative to make the economy work for us and house everyone!
Join me in the journey towards a brighter, more equitable housing future for everyone. In solidarity, Pinky.
Cesar Julian Aguirre I am a proud child of parents whose families both immigrated to Sacramento from Jalisco, Mexico, with hopes of securing a brighter future for their children. In the 1970s, my grandparents achieved the dream of homeownership in downtown Sacramento, all on a single income. Remarkably, my grandmother still resides in that same home today. Witnessing the accessibility of homeownership that they attained has fueled my passion for extending this opportunity to more Sacramentans. I firmly believe that a community land trust can play a pivotal role in advancing us towards this goal. As a renter, an active member of the Sacramento Tenants Union, and through my various roles within the Alliance of Californians for Community Empowerment, I've gained valuable insights into the challenges faced by many in our community.
The struggle against rising rents, particularly in recent decades, and the injustices inflicted by landlords have become increasingly prevalent.
My vision is to see our housing entrusted to an entity that recognizes housing as a fundamental human right and embraces a democratic decision-making model. I eagerly anticipate the day when our board is composed of fellow tenants who are part of the Sacramento Land Trust, as this will bring us closer to a more equitable and just housing future for all!
Meet our Board Members!
