IDEA Committee’s Arizona Boards and Commissions Meeting
December 1 @ 12:30 pm - 1:30 pm
The IDEA Committee as part of the AFP Southern Arizona chapter has taken on a new initiative to make Arizona Boards and Commissions much more accessible to people of color. There are currently 220 active boards and commissions and each of them allow for “public members” who can be anyone from the community. By making these seats more accessible to people of color, we are diversifying the voices in the room where decisions are being made about our communities and issues that we care about. Barry Wong, the Executive Director of the Governor’s Office of Equal Opportunity will be attending the December 1st IDEA Committee meeting to explain this application process and answer any questions. This meeting is open to the public, you do not need to be an AFP member or fundraiser to attend. We encourage not just people of color to attend, but allies who want to better understand this process so they can share with people of color who might be interested in these opportunities. You can learn more about Arizona Boards and Commissions on their website.
Date/Time: Tuesday, December 1st, 12:30 – 1:30 PM
Zoom link will be shared via email before the meeting.
Registration is required.
