Because of recent electoral changes, some of these links are outdated or will be outdated by the end of 2018, but here is a start for many of you.
Civic engagement in the United States has many dimensions, including raising awareness of various causes, events, and concerns in our communities. It can take a lot of work to put a gathering or event together, whether it’s for a month or a day. Presently the majority of Governor’s offices have the ability to issue a proclamation for your cause, but typically the policy is one proclamation a year for one thing per group, and it is typically not for honoring one single individual except under clear and extraordinary circumstances. You should usually send in your requests at a minimum of 1 month in advance for consideration, and to give their staff time to present you with additional questions or suggestions for revising the language.
