Who should apply?
Community members and representatives of local community based organizations or service providers representing different supervisorial districts are invited to apply. The lived experiences, perspectives, and expertise of Black, Indigenous, and people of color are fundamental to the success of this work. We strongly encourage applications from people who hold these identities and lived experience, and within these identities, youth, people identifying as LGBTQ+, and people living with disabilities.
