Wednesday evening, the City of El Paso was once again named an 2020 All-America City at the annual All-America City awards, as presented by the National Civic League
“I have always known El Paso is a city that shines,” said Mayor Dee Margo. “Being named a 2020 All-America City just reinforces our place among the great cities of our nation.”
The National Civic League recognizes ten communities each year for outstanding civic accomplishments. To win, each community must demonstrate innovation, inclusiveness, civic engagement, and cross sector collaboration by describing successful efforts to address pressing local challenges.
“Our El Paso delegation worked hard for our community. They did an amazing job of explaining how we supported our immigrant population, how we banded together to support the families of our 23 lost souls, and how we are working with all areas of the region to survive and overcome the pandemic,” said City Manager Tommy Gonzalez.
“Our community cares for each other and works hard to show just how wonderful a place El Paso is to live.”
The City of El Paso won by outlining three community projects that address the community’s most pressing challenges and improving the quality of life of its residents.
- El Paso’s Response to the Humanitarian Crisis at the Border
- Community-Wide Mental Health and Emergency Response
- People and Pets – Reaching Community-wide “No-Kill” Status
The City of El Paso had previously won the prestigious award in 1969, 2010 and 2018.
