.WE’RE PUTTING IN WORK FOR THE KIDS!
Rain or shine, our SAC KIDS FIRST volunteers will do the work that needs to be done to get this initiative on the March 2020 ballot. CALIFORNIA URBAN PARTNERSHIP, YOUTH FORWARD and SACRAMENTO YOUTH ALLIANCE led a signature gathering effort in North Natomas on Saturday March 2nd. Despite the rain, this coalition of youth and adults were eagerly gathering signatures so that Sacramento can have the opportunity to establish a children’s fund which will expand services to children, youth and their families. #SacKidsFirst

UPDATE: FRIDAY MARCH 1ST, 2019 ACTIVISTS CARVE OUT TIME FOR FUN AND SELF CARE
As a CALIFORNIA URBAN PARTNERSHIP-supported effort continued to gather signatures to place the SACRAMENTO KIDS FIRST (SKF) youth program funding measure on the ballot, it was time to pause for a good time. On Friday March 1st, Jim Keddy and Nia MooreWeathers of YOUTH FORWARD – along with Jay Franco - hosted a night of fun and fundraising for SKF at Luna’s Café in downtown Sacramento. Nia MooreWeathers warmed the crowd up with her unique singing style, followed with a bit of spoken word from Jay Franco. The Booms with Jim Keddy wowed the crowd with a jamming mixture of rock and blues. These great leaders have many talents and know how to have a good time!
