Sacramento Faces Race
SFR is an opportunity for committed community members to learn about the history, consequences, and subtleties related to a challenging topic society cannot agree upon—institutional racism. We don’t believe that blaming individuals or communities helps to bring about change. Educating ourselves about the root causes of the issue, can bring about solutions. SFR offers an opportunity to think more deeply and share thoughts with the hope of understanding the social challenge with more compassion and courage. Ultimately, when we remedy social injustice, it will aid in raising our country’s potential for excellence in our global society.
