Sacramento is home. It always has been, and it always will be. Having lived here most of my life, I recognize Sacramento is a place where people hold a variety of opinions, live amid a rich environmental landscape and are part of diverse communities.
But like most of the country, Sacramento is also steeped in structural and societal inequities that disproportionately affect people of color and poorer communities.
As CapRadio’s news editor, it’s my job to help our reporters develop stories with the context and understanding of Sacramento´s history and the many experiences of the people who live here.
Sacramento is yours as much as mine, so if you have any questions or suggestions on how CapRadio should report on what´s happening, let me know.
