Black Child Legacy Campaign

The Black Child Legacy Campaign is the community-driven movement established by the Steering Committee on Reduction of African American Child Deaths, which is working to reduce deaths of African American children by 10% to 20% by 2020 in Sacramento County.

In Sacramento County, African American children die at twice the rate of any other ethnicity. The four leading causes of death are perinatal conditions, infant sleep-related deaths, child abuse, and neglect and third party homicides. Learn more about this disparity from the Sacramento County Blue Ribbon Commission report and the Child Death Review Team report.
