Citizens Idea, Voice, & Input Committee
C.I.V.I.C. gives you the opportunity to make your voice heard. For too long, there has been a disconnect between citizens and their elected representatives. With C.I.V.I.C., you will be able to speak directly to your representatives, share your view on important legislation with friends and neighbors, and track your representative’s voting record to see if they are listening to you, their constituents.
How does it work?
After each A.A.P. meeting, you will be able to give testimony on a predetermined action item. This video will be uploaded to the website and sent to your representatives. You will also be able to share this video with your friends, family, and neighbors via social media. We encourage you to post the videos on Facebook and tweet them to your representatives on Twitter. The more the video is shared and liked, the more powerful your voice becomes.
Power to the people
Vimeo Pro has built in analytics tracking. This allows us to see where the video is being watched, how many times it’s been viewed, and how many people like the video. If a video has been viewed 50,000 times and 25,000 views came from Collin County, we can let your representative know that 25,000 people in their voting block has seen this video and 5,000 people gave it a thumbs up. That means that 5,000 people agree with your video message. Your voice now represents 5,000 of your fellow constituents. That’s powerful!
Putting it all together
The videos will always be available right here on the A.A.P. website. We will include the analytics information along with the voting record of your representatives that corresponds to the video you made. With this information, you will be able to see if your representative is actually listening to you. No more sending an email only to receive a generic email response in return. No more calling your representatives only to be blocked by their secretary gate keepers. It’s time to make your representatives listen to you. Join the Citizens Idea, Voice, & Input Committee and help us restore the republic.
