The BCLI provides advocates with not just a voice, but a vote at the table. We recruit people from low-income communities and communities of color who have a proven track record of leadership as social justice advocates. They’re distinguished by a passion to change systems by learning the “inside game.” We deeply invest in each cohort through our six-month BCLI fellowship, which teaches advocates how to understand complex and intersecting policy arenas, navigate the culture and language of commissions, and build effective relationships in and outside the commission.
The BCLI information sessions are an opportunity to learn more about the program's purpose, selection process, format, and important dates. You will meet staff and BCLI alumni who can answer your questions and share their experiences of the program. The first information session will be a live webinar. Check their website for upcoming info sessions in San Francisco, San Mateo, and Fremont.
