TRANSPARENCY

OFFICIALS WITHIN OUR LEGAL SYSTEM WILL DEMONSTRATE THEIR COMMITMENT TO FIGHTING FOR TRANSPARENCY IN GOVERNMENT BY:

Ensuring that decisions made are available and accessible to all

 

Operating through a two-way open forum in which everyone has full access to public information, decisions, and actions

 

Erring on the side of oversharing and being overly transparent with their constituents

 

Genuinely valuing communication with those they represent and demonstrating an understanding of the diversity that makes up their constituents’ communities

 

Understanding how inequity makes civic engagement inaccessible, and actively working to change this; examples are virtual townhalls, easily digestible fact sheets, language interpretation, and public hearings

 

Seeking guidance from the community and community-based organizations about their priorities, and account for them
