The vitality of the 2020 Vision Campaign stems from the interaction of mayors and civil society activists. Without support and encouragement from citizens a mayor may be inclined to leave "national security" matters up to the national government. The authority of the citizen activist or organization rest upon his/her or its reputation; a mayor can speak with authority on behalf of the entire community. Collectively mayors can represent a substantial portion, even a majority, of a nation's people.
So why not become a member today!
