BART seeks applicants for Environmental Justice and Title VI Advisory Committee
2013 – 2015 Term
As part of BART’s Environmental Justice and Title VI compliance, the Office of Civil Rights is creating an Environmental Justice and Title VI Advisory Committee (Advisory Committee). The Advisory Committee will serve as a forum for public participation for BART on issues related to its Environmental Justice and Title VI Programs.
The objective of the Advisory Committee is to:
Ensure that BART takes reasonable steps to incorporate Environmental Justice and Title VI Policy principles in its transportation decisions-making process.
Provide input on the most effective methods to engage and respond to Environmental Justice and Title VI populations.
Ensure meaningful involvement in BART’s transportation decision making process by promoting collaboration and problem solving on issues related to Environmental Justice and Title VI.
To start, the Advisory Committee will meet every other month. Members should be able to attend 50% of meetings, annually. The Committee will have up to 12 members, selected from community-based organizations (CBOs) within the District’s four-county service area. Applicants must be members or active participants of CBOs that are involved in advancing Title VI and Environmental Justice issues on behalf of low-income, and minority populations.
