King County Civil Rights Commission seeks new members

King County residents interested in public service and raising community awareness and involvement in civil rights issues are invited to apply for one of four open positions on the King County Civil Rights Commission.

The commission advises the county executive and King County Council about matters related to the county’s civil rights programs and other civil rights issues. If selected and confirmed by the council, commissioners serve three-year terms.

That includes reviewing and reporting on the effectiveness and progress of the county’s affirmative action program, nondiscrimination enforcement and minority/women business utilization programs. In addition, the commission works to educate and engage the community about the county’s Equity and Social Justice programs.

The Civil Rights Commission is soliciting applications from individuals in districts 2, 3, 4 and 7. Issaquah is a member of the third district.
