WeHo Seeks Members for New Social Justice Task Force

The West Hollywood City Council is seeking members for its soon-to-be Social Justice Task Force, according to a news release.

In an effort to increase community engagement and amplify the voices of Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC) in the West Hollywood community, the City Council of the City of West Hollywood has approved the creation of a Social Justice Task Force to identify social and racial inequities and issues and provide policy recommendations to the City Council. The Task Force will consist of members that reflect the Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC) community members who live, work, or own businesses in the City of West Hollywood.

The Task Force will consist of nine members — one direct appointee from each of five Councilmembers and four at-large appointees. Interested community members should submit an application to the City Clerk's office by Monday, February 22, 2021 to be considered for a Task Force appointment. Applications will be reviewed by City staff and City Council through the month of February and staff will return to City Council within 60 days for the City Council to make appointments. After the City Council makes appointments, the Social Justice Task Force will convene its first meeting and adopt a 12-month work plan, with opportunities for extensions or adaptations as necessary.
