Using What You Learn in CityWise as an Equity and Social Justice (ESJ) Community Consultant

The City of Shoreline also works with community members as Equity and Social Justice (ESJ) Community Consultants, in support of Resolution 467 declaring the City’s commitment to building an anti-racist community.

ESJ Community Consultants work with City staff to help inform and engage community members in City planning and programs in meaningful ways, such as providing input on community safety and youth recreation programs. The time involved may include 1-2 meetings per month, during evenings/weekends. Participants will receive a stipend for their time, if selected.
