Urban Habitat’s Boards and Commissions Leadership Institute (BCLI) trains and supports leaders from low-income communities of color to influence housing, transportation, and land use policies as decision makers. We work with leaders committed to advancing equitable policies, help them get onto public boards and commissions, and provide individualized support throughout their commission service.

The BCLI training helps participants understand complex and intersecting policy arenas, navigate the culture and language of commissions, and build effective relationships.

Why Apply?

  • Deepen your knowledge of and the ability to advance equitable transportation, housing, and land use policies by understanding how it intersects with race and class.

  • Learn commissioner skills such as power mapping, Robert’s Rules of Order, and how to apply an inside/outside strategy.

  • Participate in a facilitated learning community of field experts, trainers, advocate commissioners, grassroots organizers, and elected officials who will share best practices, lessons learned, and key concepts.

  • Join a network of social justice advocates influencing policy decisions on local and regional commissions.



    Go to the BCLI webpage for more information about the program and application process, as well as to register for in-person informational sessions.

    Applications are due by Sunday, October 16, 11:59 pm.

Are you fearing or at risk of eviction?

Eviction is a process. YOU DO NOT NEED TO LEAVE YOUR HOME IMMEDIATELY IF YOU RECEIVE AN EVICTION NOTICE. STAY IN YOUR HOME.

Landlords locking out, intimidating, or evicting tenants outside of the court process are against the law.

If you receive a notice to “Pay or Quit”

Or

If you receive a 3 day notice

Call Legal Services of Northern California at (707) 643-0054 to determine if the notice was served legally or not, and to determine your rights and how to protect them.

DO NOT SELF-EVICT. The only person that can remove you from your home is the sheriff, and that is only after the eviction process has gone through the courts.

Housing is a human right!

At the Vallejo Housing Justice Coalition (VHJC), we believe that housing is a human right. We envision a city with housing that is affordable and reflects the needs, diversity and culture of our community. We fight for Housing Justice across race, culture, age and sexual orientation.
