Two regional groups selected for AWC Strong Cities pilot projects

In August, AWC reached out to members and regional groups of city and town officials to initiate two regional pilot efforts designed to create broader support of city issues by community members, the media, and ultimately legislators. Congratulations to the cities and towns in Cowlitz and Wahkiakum Counties and in northeast Washington that were selected for this project!

Throughout the fall, AWC will work with these two groups to develop messages and strategies to help officials better initiate conversations and build stronger partnerships to advocate for city issues. Where applicable, tools and templates will be created to share with all cities and towns to make it easier for other regions to replicate the project and advocate for common needs.

About the Strong Cities, Great State campaign

Bringing cities and towns together to achieve greater results and deliver stronger services is at the heart of AWC’s Strong Cities, Great State campaign.

In order to do this, AWC promotes a broad public understanding of cities and towns. We provide tools so city officials can speak with constituents about the important role of cities and towns, address community needs, and spur action that makes a positive impact on future generations.

Cities are stronger when working together, and one united voice has a significant impact on decision-makers. This is why AWC works with all 281 cities and towns to create and sustain strong cities. When the entire city family is strong, cities and the state flourish.
