It’s not just spring baseball that’s affected.

John Iniguez is executive director of the River City Theater Company, which is also on lockdown.

“It’s kind of collateral damage for all these organizations that can’t do their programs,” Iniguez said. “They can’t provide these important learning skills to these kids.”

A spokesperson for Sacramento City Unified said they could not open campuses to civic groups because they could not guarantee site security and maintenance during the strike.

This strike does not stop at preventing children from going to school. There are community groups jostling each other.

Some of these nonprofits may return to Zoom meetings during the strike.
