Civic Engagement

Making the world a better place for us all starts in your immediate community. In order to affect real change, IACS works to empower our community by advocating for deeper involvement in the civic process. We encourage community members to fulfill their civic duties by staying current on issues impacting the community, promoting democracy and hosting hosting periodic community forums where a dialogue exists between community members and elected officials.


Voter Engagement

In order to vote, you must be a citizen of the U.S., 18 years of age or older, a resident of Washington State and a registered voter. If you have not yet registered to vote, you can register to vote at the Washington Secretary of State’s website for more options including by-mail and in-person.

Candidate Forums

We conduct non-partisan candidate forums for candidates participating in local elections so that our community is well informed about their campaigns and can make an informed choice.

Community Conversations

The Community Conversation program series fosters dialogue between community members.

Cultural & Celebratory Events

Civic engagement requires a deep understanding of your surrounding community and its needs, which can be shaped or influenced by the community's culture, customs, and traditions. As an inclusive community based organization, IACS annually celebrates the many facets of Indian arts and culture. Festive times and celebrations connect us as a community .
