The city of Spokane is looking for youth to fill three open positions on its Human Rights Commission. The commission, which meets monthly, advises the City Council on local issues related to human rights and discrimination and organizes community education projects. All Spokane residents ages 16 to 18 are welcome to apply to represent their City Council district on the commission.
Joanne Benham of the Spokane Regional Youth Department said that youth offer the commission a unique and valuable perspective on issues such as diversity in Spokane. Applicants should have a passion for social justice and be willing to work closely with adults.
Applications are due by 5 pm on April 5. To apply or get more information, contact the Spokane Regional Youth Department at 509-625-6440 or visit their Website.
