General Public
Task Force

The General Public Task Force works to create a public narrative around civic engagement that inspires broader public participation. The group has developed internal and external messaging used for Houston in Action communications and provided communications support for GenHTX. The group will continue build a narrative that seeks to improve civic engagement in Houston.
