From Personal Experience

By Rasheeda Green

Genay, Rose, and Z are alums of the Boards and Commissions Leadership Institute (BCLI) a strategy and program under Urban Habitat in the Bay Area. We discuss how personal experience informs social activism and how BCLI empowers and equips people of color with the tools to join  and run commissions. The ladies talk about what brought them to BCLI and how folks can get involved in their communities to make positive change. We shout out groups doing the work, our families and each other.
