One of the greatest strengths of our democracy is that it allows for all citizens to participate in the civic and political processes in their communities, states and on the national level. This involvement gives every citizen the opportunity to have a voice in the shaping of present and future policies and laws that will guide our country.
PACIO is a non-partisan and non-profit organization that seeks to raise all citizens’ awareness of the important issues of our time, and how citizens of every age can become involved in civil and political efforts to improve our communities, states, and nation.
PACIO’s intent is to provide a one-stop clearing house for these activities by providing easy access to information about events and volunteer opportunities of a civic or non-partisan political nature ( participate without being registered with a party- for example, attending a "Candidates Night") at the local, regional and statewide levels. Town/regional political committee 's meeting schedule are also posted. This information is shown for the most recent gubernatorial state-wide parties ( and any other party that embraces the values of pluralistic democratic political engagement):
*Democratic Party www.massdems.org
*Republican Party www.massgop.com
*Green-Rainbow Party www.green-rainbow.org
*United Independent Party www.unitedindependent.org .
PACIO is a community resource that provides nonpartisan information enabling community members to identify opportunities for participation in the civic and political processes. While PACIO may post messages about specific volunteer opportunities from various political parties, PACIO does not act on behalf of or endorse any political party or candidate.
