Call for Racial Equity Committee Applications

The Sacramento CoC Board is accepting applications for appointment to its Racial Equity Committee (REQ).

Applications are due by Thursday, December 31, 2020 at 5:00 PM and the committee slate is anticipated to be announced by the full Board on Wednesday, January 13th, 2021.

The Racial Equity Committee holds primary responsibility for uncovering the scope, causes, and potential solutions of race serving as a predictor for homelessness in Sacramento. This discovery extends to the ways in which Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC) experience homelessness and our local homelessness system. As knowledge is generated, it will be disbursed through interactive trainings, accessible reports, and other user-friendly mechanisms.

You are invited to read and distribute this recruitment letter. A complete description of the scope of work for this committee, as well as the roles and responsibilities of a committee member, can be found in the application. In recent applications we received questions about the REQ, please see the questions and answers here.
