As commissioners, our alumni work to advance equitable policies and processes. For example, on the Hayward Community Services Commission an alumna drafted and passed a resolution that centered BIPOC communities in their funding decisions and on the Alameda County Public Health Commission, racism was recognized as a public health issue through the work of an alum.
Alumni also foster relationships to bring the voices of impacted communities into decision-making processes. In Eastern Contra Costa County, an alum on the Ambrose Recreation and Park District Board worked to hold one of their meetings at a park to enable community participation and resulted in the approval of a new ADA-compliant park - the first in this unincorporated area!
BCLI alumni serve on a variety of commissions. The specific boards and commissions on which BCLI alumni are currently serving are listed below.
