As 2019 comes to a close, many of us will spend time reflecting on the past year while setting goals for the year ahead. 2020 promises to be a historic year for our democracy—with a presidential election, Census count, and another potentially record-breaking number of women serving in Congress and state-wide offices. This New Year’s, make civic engagement part of your resolution, and set specific goals to grow your civic leadership in 2020.
This Take Action Tuesday, set a New Year’s Civic Leadership Resolution!
- Engage Ahead Of The Election. Before you head to the polls in November, plan your involvement early by volunteering for or donating to candidates up and down the ballot who best represent you and your community. Find tips for lending early support to candidates here.
- Create A Plan. Take a moment to create an actionable plan by setting concrete goals and marking your calendar with important dates like voter registration deadlines and election dates. Your 2020 goals might include dedicating a specific amount time to advocacy each week or taking certain civic engagement actions for the first time like publishing an op-ed or attending a town hall.
- Get Others Involved. Consider inviting others to join you in setting their own civic leadership resolutions. Share your goals with one another and help keep each other accountable by scheduling check ins throughout the year. See where your goals overlap and tackle new challenges together.
