Join 916 Ink for the                                      4th Annual Walk 4 Literacy


The 4th annual Walk 4 Literacy is a collaboration between the Sacramento Public Library Foundation, 916 Ink, and Teach for America, in an effort to solve the massive literacy crisis happening in Sacramento. 2 out of 3 children can’t read at grade-level, and through this event, we hope to create awareness, and bring our communities together to fight this growing problem in our very own backyard. Take a stroll with the 916 Ink team Saturday, October 21st, starting in McKinley Park, and heading all the way to Cesar Chavez park where the Walk 4 Literacy festival will be held. There will be live music, awesome local food trucks, and of course all your favorite nonprofits!

Our Mission

916 Ink transforms Sacramento youth into confident writers and published authors who know the power of story. 

From a Parent

Testimonial from Jennifer Bacsafra

Good Morning,

I just wanted to say a heartfelt THANK YOU!!! to 916ink, Ms. Camagna, and Maestra Suarez for bringing the Youth Writers Program to the Language Academy of Sacramento. 

I have a daughter who has proudly displayed her certificate on the kitchen cabinet for all to see.  She doesn’t generally do this, so it demonstrated to us how proud of it she is.  Each week she said that she had a great time and her love of writing is even more encouraged.  We are looking forward to the book release!  Please let me know if you need any volunteer assistance with set up, clean up, etc.

Thanks again for all you do to help students and young minds grow!

With much appreciation,
Jennifer Bacsafra

Funder Feedback

“I cannot even begin to describe all that 916 Ink is and does, though I often find myself trying to describe it to friends and family because it is a great example of a program that does remarkable things in super creative ways.  I like to describe my best recollection of the Imaginarium, where there are tons of props of various and assorted subject matter, to stimulate the creativity in the young writers.”
