OCA Sacramento and Senate President Pro Tem Darrell Steinberg are the founding partners of the Sacramento Regional Coalition for Tolerance.


Responding to repeat occurrences of hate crimes in the Sacramento Region, OCA Sacramento in partnership with State Senate President Pro Tem Darrell Steinberg (D-Sacramento), founded the Sacramento Regional Coalition for Tolerance in November 2010.  The coalition brings together community leaders from civil rights and social justice groups, multicultural chambers, interfaith, educators, legislators, and lawmakers to collaborate on hate crimes and bullying by maintaining open lines of communications, sharing resources, in addition to outreach and education to communities.

In January 2011, the coalition partnered with the Hate Crime Task Force from the office of U.S. Attorney Benjamin Wagner of the Eastern District to host a reception in Sacramento for Assistant Attorney General Thomas Perez, head of the Civil Rights Division in D.C. reporting to U.S. Attorney Eric Holder. Community leaders provided Assistant Attorney General Perez input to the Obama Administration’s
 www.StopBullying.gov website, launched two months later.


The coalition is designed to empower members to direct activities. Besides meeting quarterly, the coalition chair, as administrator of the program, emails relevant news articles to coalition members, mainly from the local region on hate crimes and bullying. The non-political, non-partisan coalition also serves as the clearinghouse for coalition members to share information on the issues from their individual organizations.
