Civic and Policy Engagement Action Team Meeting

Guided by an advisory team of local leaders, the Civic and Policy Engagement Action Team acknowledges that civic engagement and policy advocacy are important actions and skill sets for not-for-profit organizations because advocacy promotes positive change that impacts the lives of the people we serve. The Civic and Policy Engagement Action Team aspires to inform partners of the Jefferson Community Collaborative on how to be their best advocates and to create opportunities to educate elected officials and other government officials about the value of the work of community-serving not-for-profit organizations. The Civic and Policy Engagement Action Team is committed to creating space for sharing resources and elevating important topics pertinent to residents in the Jefferson service area in a nonpartisan manner.

Goals of Civic and Policy Engagement Action Team:

  • To provide education and training of Collaborative partners on how to best approach civic and policy engagement.
  • To inform elected officials and other government officials of the needs of the communities within the Jefferson service area and the value of the work of partners of the Collaborative.
  • To inform community stakeholders of the needs within the Jefferson service area.
  • To create an opportunity to elevate issues that impact the lives of the people served by the Collaborative.
  • To remain nonpartisan in all initiatives of the Civic and Policy Engagement Action Team.

 

Participation in these efforts is open to all Jefferson Collaborative Partners. Please contact daniel.vereb@jeffersonrf.org if you are interested in joining the Action Team.
