Application Deadline: October 28, 2011 - 5:00 pm
San Francisco, CA- The San Francisco Human Rights Commission ((HRC) is accepting applications for new membership to the agency’s Equity Advisory Committee (“EAC”). The EAC is one of three “Advisory Committees” for the HRC and is entrusted to advise the full Commission and the HRC Director on quality of life issues affecting the City’s diverse and multicultural communities.
Since 2009, the EAC has tackled various equity-related issues ranging from, but not limited to, human trafficking, homelessness, environmental justice, immigration, healthcare and housing access. In 2011, the Committee worked to bring greater attention to the issue of Domestic Workers’ Rights and is currently working to address issues surrounding the decrease in population of communities of color in San Francisco.
The EAC seeks members who are actively involved in San Francisco’s diverse communities and who possess knowledge and substantive experience in issue areas relevant to the Committee’s broad charge.
Applicants must make a one year commitment to attend EAC meetings on the second Wednesday of every month from 5:30 – 7:30 p.m. Additionally, all members will be expected to devote significant time to the projects and undertakings of the Committee, including participation in working groups. Applicants must be available for interviews between November 7th - November 15 and plan for the EAC’s day-long Saturday retreat tentatively set for January 2012 (date to be determined based on members’ schedules).
INTERESTED PERSONS MUST SUBMIT AN APPLICATION AND RESUME BY OCTOBER 28, 2011- 5:00 PM.
