No Justice, No Peace!

The 2024 National Action Network's Chapter of The Year!

Home: Welcome

Join us at Genesis Church for three days of impactful discussions and networking at the Bridging The Divide Conference hosted by the National Action Network Sacramento. This in-person event aims to bring together community leaders, activists, and individuals passionate about creating positive change. This conference is a pivotal gathering that brings together activists, allies, and advocates to discuss civil rights activism, social justice advocacy, and education reform. This year's theme, "Bridging the Divide," aims to spotlight the commendable efforts of individuals who are working tirelessly to dismantle systemic barriers and cultivate a more just and equitable society.

The conference will feature a range of activities, including a lobby day at the State Capitol, workshop sessions, a youth huddle day, and our 2nd Annual Building Bridges Gala to honor the 2024 Building Bridges honorees. The Building Bridges Gala is a ticketed event held at The Center at District 56. Tickets for this event can be purchased separately in our ticket section.

Mission of NAN Sacramento


Home: Who We Are

In response to the tragic Stephon Clark shooting occurring in March 2018, Dr. Tecoy Porter, Senior Pastor of the Genesis Church, was requested to form and lead the Sacramento Chapter of the National Action Network, one of the leading civil rights organizations in the nation founded by the Rev. Al Sharpton. In this role, Dr. Porter, along with Rev. Darryl Scarbrough, Dr. Margaret Fortune, and Mrs. Karlette Porter has worked diligently in advancing legislation supporting criminal justice reform, amending police use of force practices, ensuring equal voting rights, and school choice for all throughout California.


Home: What We Do


Making A Difference

Criminal Justice Reform

The right to equal justice under the law should not be conditional or based upon a person’s color or economic status. Using the principles of non-violent direct action and civil disobedience NAN has helped to level the field and ensure a measure of justice for those who would abuse their status or seek to dispense justice based upon race or other illegal factors. Racial profiling, stop and frisk policing and police brutality was standard practice in many communities just over 20 years ago. Many of the anti-racial profiling laws on the books today are a direct result of NAN’s commitment to the principles and practices of Dr. King and the tradition of non-violent engagement. Through its advocacy, NAN continues to impact public policy and ensure that the government itself is held accountable to the law.


Close the African American Achievement Gap

At National Action Network Sacramento, we are committed to closing the African American achievement gap by ensuring that every black and brown family has the right to school choice.

Charter schools have historically provided this opportunity and we are committed to ensuring that they continue to do so. School choice is the Black choice.

Corporate Responsibility, Inclusion, and Diversity

With this initiative, our goal is to promote equal and fair treatment of all workers by big corporations. We know that the most valuable resources are human resources. We are committed to making sure that this is so for all laborers in CA.


Every Vote Counts

NAN works to ensure that every vote in every community across the nation is counted. NAN is leading the fight against voter suppression and voter ID laws and in 2012, NAN led a voter engagement tour to register and educate voters. In 2014, only 36.4% of voters turned out to midterm elections, compared to 40.9% in 2010. Especially during this administration, the swell in political action and mobilization around congress and legislation is moving quickly. As we enter 2020, an election year, we will fight to ensure that every person's right to vote is protected and exercised. As Dr. King said in 1965 in Montgomery, “The Civil Rights Act of 1964 gave Negroes some part of their rightful dignity, but without the vote, it was dignity without strength.”

Training the Next Generation of Leaders

NAN puts youth and young leaders at the forefront of the movement for Civil Rights. Initiatives including NAN Youth Huddle, NAN Youth Move and the NAN Campus Ambassador program seek to lift up the voices of our young people so that they may lead the fight for the next generations. With leaders ages 11 to 25 we never leave out the passionate and visionary voices of our youth.
