Welcome to the PSR/Sacramento Website

PSR/Sacramento is a non-profit, educational organization of health
care professionals and other concerned citizens committed to the following goals:

  • Eliminating nuclear weapons and promoting alternatives to war and militarism as a means of resolving international conflict and preventing terrorism (see the Nuclear Weapons, War, and Militarism page for information about our “1,000 Call Campaign” to help rid the world of nuclear weapons)
  • Protecting the environment and reducing man-made contributions to global warming.
  • Promoting social justice, both locally and globally.
  • Curbing the epidemic of interpersonal violence, including gun violence, that afflicts our society (please see the Gun Violence Prevention page)
  • Ensuring universal access to affordable medical care

The 2020 PSR/Sacramento High School Scholarship Contest is now open to High School Seniors in Sacramento and Surrounding Counties. A total of $15,000 will be awarded. The prompt for this year’s contest is the following quotation by the Guatemalan civil rights activist and 1992 Nobel Peace Prize Winner, Rigoberta Menchu Tum:

“Peace is not only the absence of war.  As long as there is poverty, racism, discrimination and exclusion, we’ll be hard-pressed to achieve a world of peace.”

For full contest details and the online entry form, please go to the Scholarship Essay Contest Page of this website. Links to the essays of past contest winners are also posted on this page. Note: The deadline for students to enter the 2020 contest is Saturday, March 21.
