Civic Engagement

Pubilc schools listening event in Cabarrus County

Civic engagement is how we build long-lasting and sustainable people power. 

One of the things that makes the biggest difference in our small towns and rural communities is staying civically engaged. What does that mean? It means knowing who your local representatives are, where to go when you or your neighbors are having a problem, and organizing together to push for positive changes. 

The people who have them most influence in our day-to-day lives aren’t the folks in Washington- they’re right here in our towns at our school boards, our county commissioners, our sheriffs, and more. It’s up to us, the people, to keep them accountable to us.

By working together, we can improve the quality of life for our neighbors of all backgrounds. Get involved today by scrolling below!
