Civic Engagement Moving Forward

Many factors linked to SELA’s historical reality, current conditions, and stakeholder network impacts our ability to strengthen the SELA community, build collective power, and encourage innovation to drive regional systemic change.

The SELA Collaborative attained critical regional milestones during the 2020 Census through the Census outreach partners network, regional coordination efforts, and increased visibility of civically engaged SELA partners. In order to continue this momentum, the SELA Collaborative aims to highlight different Civic Engagement opportunities in the region. Please note that this list is limited. It is important to note that this is NOT an endorsement from the SELA Collaborative– however, we intend to encourage the region to leverage the learning attained during the 2020 Census to increase civic engagement in the region. These are some of the opportunities residents can plug into in 2020-2021.
