Transcript 9 PRIORITIES COMMITTEES FULFILLMENT OF CITY ADMINISTRATION PLEDGES The committee reports action in the following areas: 1) care: Committee members have been working with the Ad Hoc Task Force for Children on a proposal for an office or children and youth in city government. According to Task Force chair Marie Oser, the proposal, which recommends the establishment of an advisory committee to the mayor on children and youth for the purpose of establishing such an office, has been completed and should be submitted to the city sometime around Labor Day. The advisory committee would assess the structure of the proposed office, determine Its role in the city, and secure funding for it. Ms. Oser said that the ectlon suggested by the proposal would represent an Initial step in fulfilling the mayor's pledge to have the city of Houston recognize and meet the needs of children and families. 2) Women in city government: As of press time, committee member Cilia Estrada, who serves on the city's Affirmative Action Commission, reported that the Commission would probably not meet its July 31 deadline for the formulation of an affirmative action proposal for the city. At a recent Commission meeting, Cilia brought up the problem of discrimination against homosexuals, and was met with shock and derision by many of the other members, especially the white males. Evidently some Commission members believe in affirmative action only up to a point; when it comes to discrimination against women and men on the basis of their sexual preference, affirmative action somehow becomes negative reaction. Here's hoping Cilia's courage in introducing the subject will perhaps open some closed minds Just a crack. 3) Women's Advocate:As of press time, committee members had scheduled a meeting with Poppy Northeutt to discuss her office and its relationship with HCWPC for August 2.
