To uphold our mission and to empower members of the community to achieve their highest potential and become economicly self-reliance, the Civic Engagement Center of Licking County collaborates with local community and faith based partners and our volunteers to educate the public and elected officials on the impacts of public-policy and resource allocation decisions within political, economic, and social systems.
The Center also engages in public outreach and education campaigns to increase awareness and information dissemination related to issues and initiatives that have direct impact on the quality of life and economic development in the community. We are eager to collaborate with other civil rights, community and faith based organizations to leverage resources and make a greater impact on our community. It is our goal to advocate for education, economic development, affordable housing, fair redistricting, transportation, small business and community development initiatives and policies and to serve as a voice for impactful change.
For more information or to volunteer your time to support these types of initiatives, please sign up as a volunteer or contact Donna Ellis-Shaw, Executive Director at EMCDCNEWARK@GMAIL.COM or 740-348-5577
