“Operation Stay Engaged”
is a program that educates the community on the political process, beginning with their local ward chairs and committee representatives, all of the way up to their U.S. Congressman. We strongly encourage voter registration and teach citizens to thoroughly investigate current politicians’ positions on the issues that affect their quality of life.
“Ensures The Peoples Voices Heard”
and the community is included in making decisions that affect them. We host conversations in which community members, law enforcement, and local politicians have candid dialogue about the state of their community focusing on a plan to ensure a safe and healthy quality of life for all.
