Gardenland and Northgate Resilient

The Gardenland Northgate Neighborhood Association (GNNA) is made up of residents of one of the most diverse communities in Sacramento. We have supported the protests that have shaken our nation in the aftermath of the killing of Mr. George Floyd by Minneapolis police and the many other acts of violence against people of color. However, we were disheartened to find that looters targeted businesses along Northgate Blvd. and Truxel Road. The majority of the looted businesses were small business owners who provided goods and services to our neighbors. This is a setback to our community however, Gardenland and Northgate is a resilient community and we will come out of this experience stronger and more determined to create positive change in our neighborhood.

GNNA was pleased that the day after the looting, Vice Mayor Jeff Harris sent staff to see the damage and talk to the business owners. GNNA will continue to work with City of Sacramento leaders to develop a plan to ensure more resources for our area. After the damage is cleaned up, let’s remember to support our local businesses in the coming months so that they can recover from the dual threats of the COVID-19 pandemic and looters. Let’s stick together in these difficult times and remember to watch out for each other.
