PACIO is a non-partisan and non-profit organization that seeks to raise awareness of the important issues of our time, and how citizens of every age can become involved in civic and political efforts and have a voice in the shaping of present and future policies and laws that will guide our country.
PACIO's intent is expressed in the Mission and Values statements that are found in the ABOUT Tab.
The CONGRESSIONAL DISTRICTS Tab, where towns are grouped by Congressional Districts, offers many opportunities for civic and non-partisan political involvement: Town Directory, State Government Representation, and Announcements (see below). Examples include:
* an up-to-date Data Base for civic and political contacts in the TOWN DIRECTORY and STATE GOVERNMENT Sections;
* volunteer/involvement opportunities posted by local civic and state political organizations in the ANNOUNCEMENT Section.
PACIO Events that are free to the public are posted on the HOME Tab.
