We recognize that all people are powerful and seek a board that represents the diversity of our community, with particular emphasis on the populations we serve through our programs. If you have a physical or financial barrier to participation, please let us know, and we can explore accommodations or compensation for needs such as transportation or childcare during board commitments.
