Sac is a city with a very high ratio of churches to population. It is a very conservative community with a liberal cross-section. Some of these churches sponsored Prop 8, which was the first state level ban against gay marriage.
Back when I lived in Sacramento, I was friends with a local pastor whose church supported everyone, from every walk of life. They specifically ministered to LGBTQ, and the homeless, and people struggling with addiction.

Is your physical safety at risk if you do not pay attention to the news right now?
If not, turn the fucking news off. Watching it won't change anything but make you feel worse.
If yes, are you sure you need the news? Consider monitoring local information sources and not national media. Trust what neighbors see out of their windows over what is being reported in the media.
Save your energy for when you can do something. Focus locally.
Stay safe. Stay strong.
