SOSNA’s Board of Directors strives to be representative of our neighborhood. Our Board of Directors and volunteers shape our programs and initiatives as we work towards community safety that supports and heals, not disenfranchises and displaces. We continue to be committed to creating a diverse board that represents our neighborhood in terms of race/ethnic groups, professions, education levels, ages, abilities and genders. All nomination applications are very welcome.
