Incorporated in 1986, Access Sacramento provides training and media production tools to any Sacramento County resident. Together in teams, residents produce thousands of radio and television programs per year and share them with their neighbors on cable channels 17 and 18, radio station KUBU 96.5 FM and streamed on the Internet at

Access Sacramento could not be more proud of the significant impact it has on bringing our area's diverse voices onto cable television and radio. In a world where Free Speech is a right, Access Sacramento provides residents with an opportunity to be heard and to participate in the marketplace of ideas. Refugees, immigrants, and long-time residents each deserve the chance to tell their stories. With 35 years in the community, we are recognized for the significant in-kind donations we make to area non-profits through our Hometown TV and Game of the Week broadcasts. Annually, we win several Western Access Video Excellence (WAVE) awards for providing the best community access television productions across six western states.


Access Sacramento lifts all voices by providing media education and local media platforms to engage the community in public dialogue and showcase creative expression.
