Black Child Legacy Campaign

The Black Child Legacy Campaign (BCLC) is the community-driven movement established by the Steering Committee on Reduction of African American Child Deaths, which is working to reduce the deaths of African American children 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. 

The Black Child Legacy Campaign (BCLC) is part of a network of seven (7) organizations leading the prevention and intervention efforts in their communities.

Greater Sacramento Urban League serves as the Oak Park BCLC Community Incubator Lead and hosts a wide range of services including crisis response, mentorship, resource distribution, community engagement, youth support groups, and intensive case management.
