NCLCV/F Boards and Commissions is excited to present our 2022 Fellows. The Fellows have completed a six-month training program designed to prepare them to assume positions on boards and commissions at the state or local level. Power Up Winston Salem, Fayetteville, and Raleigh/Durham were pivotal in recruiting these amazing and talented community advocates to represent marginalized communities and underrepresented members of the community by educating them on the importance of using their voice and vote to elevate the concerns of community residents. On September 10th these new community leaders will be ready to seek placement on a board or commission. Some of our fellows will run from public office. I am proud to have been on this journey with each of them as well partner with LEAD Institute facilitating the sessions and engaging nonpartisan members of the community to share their personal experiences of their journey with the fellows by serving as panel members or mentors. Together we are Building Back Better Stronger Inclusive Communities.
