Sacramento ACCE Action currently has one citywide chapter working on housing justice! From neighbors taking back vacant lots and creating community gardens, to being on the front-line of major local policy campaigns like putting rent control on the ballot and stopping unjust evictions, our members are growing a stronger chapter every day.

ACCE Members are playing a critical role in leading the movement for rent control throughout Sacramento. In early 2018, ACCE organized the residents of 91 person building and successfully organized a tenant association which even got the landlord to agree in writing that he would go through the tenant’s association before issuing any tenant evictions. In the fall of 2018, after months and months of collecting signatures, we played a critical role in successfully placing rent control and just cause evictions on the Sacramento ballot to be voted on in November 2020!
Shifting the Electorate; Sacramento is in a rapidly shifting region of the state. But while the city's demographics are changing, the old guard politics remain. We know that for Sacramentians to win progressive policies we need to shift the electorate to more closely match the city's population AND we need to make sure those newly activated voters show up and vote their values at the polls. Sacramento ACCE is building out its electoral work by carrying out regular voter outreach programs with the help of dedicated staff and motivated volunteer precinct captains. Our goal is to build a base of 20,000 low propensity voters who we can count on to show up at the polls, at city council, and at the capitol to fight for the policies their communities want and need.
