Goal 7: Residents are fully and effectively engaged in the life and decisions of the community to promote and enhance our pride, cultural values, and resources and ensure that Albuquerque’s community institutions are effective, accountable, and responsive.
Residents are involved in their community in a myriad of ways. Donations to non-profits; participation in neighborhood associations; and attendance at cultural, sporting, and entertainments events are just a few ways that citizens participate in their community. Participation and engagement help promote the community’s values and ensure that its institutions are successful. In addition, positive cultural values foster respectful relations between diverse cultures and races.
