COMMUNITY LEADERSHIP ROUNDTABLE
The Community Leadership Roundtable (CLR) is a group of volunteer members who live or work in Sacramento County and represent the seven focus neighborhoods identified in the Steering Committee on Reduction of African American Child Deaths strategic and implementation plans. Partnering with the Community Incubator Lead in their neighborhood, CLR members are liaisons between the Steering Committee and the community, responsible for relaying information and bringing forth concerns and questions. Additionally, CLR Members serve on one of three identified teams:
Cultural Brokers – Working with community members to navigate county systems effectively.
Quality Assessment – Working with The Center staff to do conduct quality assessment site visits to help our Community Incubator Lead sites work at the highest level.
Community First Responders – Providing community members in crisis with immediate needs.
Community Roundtable Applications are accepted on an ongoing basis. To apply to be a CLR member, please download the application.
STEERING COMMITTEE ON REDUCTION OF AFRICAN AMERICAN CHILD DEATHS
The Steering Committee is a community-driven body of dedicated individuals working to reduce deaths among African American children by between 10 percent and 20 percent by 2020 in Sacramento County. The Committee was established by a resolution of the Sacramento County Board of Supervisors in June 2013. Its ultimate charge is to provide coordination and oversight of efforts, create a strategic plan, monitor implementation, evaluate, and report on progress toward reducing disproportional number of African American child deaths.
