To help us make sure that our strategies, activities, and materials are informed by the priorities and needs of the community, ACE Resource Network formed a Sacramento Community Advisory Group in January of 2023.
The roles of the Community Advisory Group are to share their voices as members of the Sacramento community we’re focusing on serving, to provide input and feedback on ACE Resource Network activities and communications, and to spread the word to their circles and communities about our campaigns and events.
Applications are accepted on a rolling basis and will be reviewed if and when there may be an opening in the group. For more information on our Sacramento Community Advisory Group, please contact Camille Adams, Sacramento Community Coordinator at [email protected].
