ENGAGE ENCINITAS

Coming Together – Making A Difference


Numerous national surveys have found that fewer and fewer people know the basics of government. Meaningful civic engagement has been replaced with narrow, partisan debates.

Engage Encinitas helps participants learn more about their County and City government. The activities & events we create include presentations, “behind the scenes tours” and other activities helping YOU become a better informed citizen.
