Racial justice oversight applications
The Contra Costa County Board of Supervisors is seeking applicants for nine seats on its 18-member Racial Justice Oversight Body.
Applications are open through Oct. 10 for all nine community representative seats on the body. These consist of two members from the Contra Costa Racial Justice Coalition; two representatives with personal history of involvement in the criminal or juvenile justice system; one member from a justice-oriented organization involving youth; one member from a faith-based organization, and one member who is either school age or from an organization that serves school age youth.
The selected members are expected to serve two-year terms beginning at the start of January.
In addition to quarterly meetings, representatives are expected to attend monthly subcommittee meetings.
After the close of applications on Oct. 10 at 5 p.m., interviews are planned for Oct. 24, followed by appointments by the Board of Supervisors on Nov. 8.
