Building Stronger Community
Environmental and Latinx Committees Join Sacramento’s “City of Trees” Parade

Article Published on January 13, 2023

SEIU Local 1000’s Purpose Statement encourages all of us to create a good life for all Californians, in part, by building a stronger community.

To that end, two of our Union’s Human Rights Committees, the Environmental Committee and the Latinx Committee, will have a presence at the second annual City of Trees Parade and Festival, which will take place on Saturday, February 18, 2023.

It will be a dazzling showcase of Sacramento’s rich diversity and culture through the format of Mardi Gras.

The Curiosity Collaborative’s parade will grace the streets, from the Capitol Mall through Old Sacramento, with vibrant art from our local community. Our all-afternoon festival will have food trucks and local vendors along the parade route and a beverage garden serving donated alcoholic beverages as a fundraiser. 

The parade will include more than 1,000 participants, featuring Sacramento’s culturally diverse performance and art communities. They will illuminate Sacramento with floats, art cars, marching bands, poi spinners, brass bands, dancers, beads, and so much more! 

Members of Local 1000 will be in attendance. If you’d like to join, drop an email to the Environmental Committee, or an email to the Latinx Committee. We hope to see you there!
