CIVVYS

THE AMERICAN CIVIC COLLABORATION AWARDS

Celebrating the Partnerships that Strengthen America

NOMINATE

The Bridge Alliance and Big Tent Nation, organizations committed to the fight against partisan rancor and division, have joined forces to announce the first annual American Civic Collaboration Awards, or the Civvys.

NOMINATION

ABOUT THE CIVVYS

Driven by a panel of civic engagement experts, including former members of Congress, senior managers from top foundations and political thought leaders, the Civvys will highlight best practices in collective action that put community and nation before party, ideology and narrow interests.

 

In an era of division and gridlock, it’s more important than ever to celebrate and support organizations that work together to improve America.

 

By recognizing projects and processes that emphasize collaboration, civility and on-the-ground impact, the Civvys are a powerful means to honor this work and inspire more of it.

 

 

Do you know people or organizations working together to address what divides us? Does their work:

 

  • • Have a direct impact on America at a local, state or national level?
  • • Use collaboration, community input and other collective action principles to make a difference?
  • • Embody civility and mutual respect?

 

 

 

NOMINATE SOMEONE HERE!



The Civvy Awards are the first national awards program designed to highlight organizations and individuals that leverage collaboration as a key strength in building initiatives that improve communities.

 

Whether it’s a grassroots neighborhood group working to bring people together, a nonprofit program to improve educational outcomes, a city government outreach initiative, or a corporation working with local leaders – we’re looking forward to celebrating projects of all sizes and types that utilize collective action best practices.
