This initiative of the newly-elect Harris County Judge Lina Hidalgo will bring together thousands of Harris County residents from all walks of life to have our voices heard about issues that matter to us—from the education of our children to the fairness of our justice system—to share ideas, and to collectively inform the Judge’s priorities for her first year.
Each Civic Saturday will consist of:
- A large gathering organized around a specific theme (examples include education, health, and transportation) that will give people a chance to share new ideas for improving their communities and to hear from others;
- Smaller working groups for people who have devoted time to specific issues to focus on how to best realize community-driven ideas through county government; and
- Classroom style lessons on the workings of county government.
