The Upstream Investments Policy Committee is chartered by the Sonoma County Board of Supervisors to champion upstream principles community-wide. The Committee has a central role in our mission to encourage the use of best practices, understand the impact of these practices and promote the effectiveness of prevention-focused policies.
The Policy Committee aims for diverse leadership representing multiple community sectors. The committee is governed by the Brown Act.
To champion upstream principles, Policy Committee members:
- Promote and support the use of practices that are proven to work
- Promote and support prevention across the human lifespan
- Promote and adopt prevention-focused policies within their organizations
