Sacramento Progressive Alliance is a a multi-racial, multi-issue "rainbow coalition" dedicated to the struggle for social justice and peace.

Our key priorities include economic justice for working families; equal rights and equal opportunities for all of God's children regardless of race, gender, or sexual orientation; international solidarity; humanitarian service; eradicating poverty at home and abroad; environmental protection and sustainable development; and electing progressives to public office and then holding them accountable.

Founded in 2005, we have rapidly grown to more than 5,000 members and have emerged as one of the largest and most active grassroots organizations on the West Coast. SPA is "proud to serve as the local affiliate of United for Peace & Justice, the largest peace and justice coalition in the United States with over 1,400 member groups across the nation".[1]
