PFC Committees

To fully support our diverse student body, to create a rich learning environment, and to maintain our focus on civil rights — the PFC needs your help!

Please consider joining a PFC Committee. 

Just one of the many ways to be active in our community is to join an HMCRA committee. They are all in need of volunteers throughout the year. Please see more details here about the goals of each of these committees and what help they are looking for. If you are interested in taking part, the email contact for each committee is listed in the link above. Please be in touch!
