Sonoma County high school students are invited to apply for a spot on the Sonoma County Commission on Human Rights.

Students ages 14-18 years old are invited to apply.

Commissioners deal with various issues related to human rights. This year’s group formed ad hoc committees to deal with women’s rights, LGBT rights and disability rights. The commission also worked with the Family Justice Center and Becoming Independent. Students participated in a human trafficking forum, attended the California Association of Human Relations Organizations conference in San Francisco, met with law enforcement, met with elected officials and created a Facebook page.

Applications are being accepted through April 15. Candidates considered for selection will be notified for interviews by May 15. The position runs September through June.
