Advocacy Update

Metro Chamber’s political influence is grounded in the boldness of our advocacy program. Whether it be local, state, or federal policies, our leadership and staff understand the difficulties your business face. We fight for policies that support a robust business environment and do not fear tackling issues ourselves when our elected officials don’t get it done. Take for instance – HOMELESSNESS.

Over the past year, the Metro Chamber has led a coalition of community organizers, law enforcement, labor, business, and concerned neighbors from across Sacramento to craft a citizen’s initiative to compel the city to act on homelessness.

The Emergency Shelter and Enforcement Act of 2022, which will be on the City’s ballot in November, will require the creation of emergency temporary homeless shelters and organized safe parking and camping locations. This measure will help clean up our streets while including sensible measures to protect the most vulnerable in our community.

A lot of work must still be done to ensure victory and the Metro Chamber is dedicated to leading the charge to the finish line. With your support, the coalition continues to advocate for public policy that improves the livability, security, and economic vitality of business in the city and creates vibrant neighborhoods for the citizens of our region.
