About Us

The Sacramento Climate Coalition is a grassroots alliance of Sacramento groups and individuals working to advance the broader movement for civil rights, justice and our environment, now and in these crucial years ahead.

The Coalition was created in 2016 to fight proposals to bring explosive crude oil through Sacramento neighborhoods on their way to coastal refineries. We won the fight, and decided to expand our focus to the broader set of issues related to climate change as a whole. We have always had leadership from disadvantaged communities located near to the rail lines and are deeply committed to environmental justice. 

Over the years the Coalition has grown, and in 2018 we joined the international Climate Emergency campaign, and have been the main force behind Climate Emergency Mobilization in the Sacramento region since. We currently have 34 partners in the Climate Emergency Campaign.
