Former clients, Franklin, Tennessee and Muncie, Indiana, just received two of the ten 2020 All-America City Awards presented by The National Civic League on August 19, 2020.  According to the National Civic League’s website, “The All-America City Award recognizes communities that leverage civic engagement, collaboration, inclusiveness and innovation to successfully address local issues.” While local leadership and an engaged community deserve all the credit, we are proud to have designed and facilitated the foundational efforts. Both Franklin Tomorrow and the Muncie Action Plan were prominent in the applications and the demonstrated progress of each community.

To be considered and ultimately selected for the All-America City Award, according to the National Civic League, “Each community demonstrated civic engagement practices that are inspirational, inclusive and promising in their ability to unite members of the community to collectively and collaboratively help solve our country’s most pressing and complex issues. This year’s winners focused specifically on enhancing health and well-being through civic engagement.”
