The City of Bloomington Commission on the Status of Black Males, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Birthday Celebration Commission, and Commission on Hispanic and Latino Affairs are each seeking a new member.

The Commission on the Status of Black Males explores local issues of concern to African American males in the areas of education, employment, health, and criminal justice.  It partners and networks with other local organizations and also works with the Indiana Commission on the Social Status of Black Males in Indianapolis. Members are appointed to two year terms and must be willing and able to attend meetings on a regular basis (at least once a month).

The Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Birthday Celebration Commission raises awareness about the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., and promotes the acceptance of diversity. Commission meetings are open to the public.

The Commission on Hispanic and Latino Affairs is established to work toward economic, educational, and social equity for Hispanics and Latinos residing in Bloomington and to promote cooperation and understanding among cultures.
