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. The Committee's Charter and Bylaws are available for download.
To champion upstream principles, Policy Committee members:
- Promote and support the use of practices that are proven to work
