Sacramento has long been a hub for immigrants, and the city is one of the state’s most diverse. In many ways, immigrants and people of color have shaped the Sacramento that we live in today. But at the same time, these communities also tend to be areas of disinvestment and ones that are often on the frontlines of gentrification. They’re often overlooked by not just government, but also media.
As CapRadio’s Race and Equity reporter, I focus on reporting on racial inequity in Sacramento and the way in which policy unequally impacts historically underserved communities. As a child of immigrants, I feel particularly passionate about giving voice to these issues.
I’d like to hear from you: What stories around these communities do you think we haven’t told yet?
Let me know below.
