    This is an incredibly exciting and important time for Public Allies. On Jan. 5, 2015 we launched a national strategic planning initiative to harness the energy, insight, and experience of our entire network to help us plan the future of Public Allies. More than 1,000+ members of our community responded to our call for feedback through focus groups, interviews, surveys, and community dialogues. THANK YOU to everyone who participated!
