To the editor:
As an online forum for civic engagement, ACTion Alexandria, an initiative of ACT for Alexandria, was excited to be included in the What’s Next, Alexandria process. In the past year, ACTion has worked with the city to gather feedback for the civic engagement handbook. With the handbook officially adopted, ACTion is looking forward to working with City Hall and residents to apply the principles outlined in the document.
ACTion offers an easily accessible platform for sharing ideas and taking civic action. From collecting desks and books for donation to supporting ideas for making Alexandria greener, we are committed to local civic engagement, including gathering feedback for public policy. As we continue to partner with the city to promote community discussion, ACTion will look to the civic engagement handbook as a guide for the public feedback process.
