Here's the explanation of the "ANC and See" Challenge:
Part of 730DC's mission is to help us all -- readers, writers, friends, and neighbors -- become better citizens of this crazy little diamond we call home. A big part of DC's governance structure lies in the hyper-local meetings of Advisory Neighborhood Commissions (ANCs), which divide DC's eight wards into smaller districts of about 2,000 residents. In the next 60 seconds, you can make a plan to go to the next monthly meeting of your ANC, and tell the 730DC community all about it.
Here's how it'll work:
- Figure out your ANC district
- Find out when the next monthly meeting is
- Attend that meeting and see what your community is talking about! (Maybe even get up to speak??)
- Tell us a about the experience by answering a few quick questions
- We'll feature you in a hot blog post and on the newsletter
It's as easy as that! We'll accept responses until March 13th, so you've got a full month to find your meeting.
