Call for Applications to County Commissions


Jul 23, 2020


As I reflect on our present moment, in which protests against police violence and the disproportionate impacts of the coronavirus pandemic on communities of color have magnified persistent inequities, I am reminded of the power of community organizing to demand institutional change. In this spirit, I invite you to apply to fill one opening on the Commission on Human Rights, or two vacancies on the Commission on the Status of Women. These are important opportunities to serve our community, collaborate with leaders throughout the county, and advance initiatives that promote meaningful social change.

The Commission on Human Rights has brought awareness to human rights violations in our community, instances of racism and discrimination in our schools, and has worked to provide positive and proactive messaging that celebrates diversity, human rights, inclusion, intersectionality, and community.

The Commission on the Status of Women has brought attention to issues of inequity and the specific needs of women in our community, more recently through a series of listening sessions through their Voices of Sonoma County Women Project. Additionally, the Commission has been on the forefront of encouraging women and girls to vote, engage in community boards and commissions, and take the next step in running for elected office.

Both Commissions have amazing youth mentorship programs that have created a number of impactful projects for the benefit of our Sonoma County community.

Apply now to join the Commission on Human Rights or Commission on the Status of Women!  You can see details on each commission and how to apply below:
