The Oakland Mayor’s Commission on Persons with Disabilities (MCPD) is currently accepting applications to fill several vacancies.
The MCPD is an appointed group of volunteers who are committed to promoting the participation of persons with disabilities in all aspects of City government and the broader community. The purpose of the MCPD is to advise the Mayor and City Council on issues concerning the disability community; act as the City’s advisory body for implementation of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA); review and comment on City policies, programs and activities that impact persons with disabilities; render advice and assistance on disability issues to other City boards and commissions, City staff and private agencies; and participate at the local, state and national levels in the advancement of disability civil rights.
Individuals who live or work in Oakland are eligible to apply.
Individuals with and without disabilities are encouraged to apply.
The MCPD meets on the second Monday of each month, except August. Meetings are held from 1 PM – 3:30 PM in Oakland City Hall Hearing Room 3 (adjacent to the 14th Street entrance). We are accessible via BART and AC Transit.
