One City, Our City, My City
One City, Our City, My City is a year long campaign with the vision that states Jacksonville is a unified and Caring Community. We are One City. The campaign comes after a year of meetings with members of the City’s faith community where the need for tolerance, understanding and civility was discussed.
Mayor Phillips leads the group and the announcement held Friday July 21, 2017 to launch the campaign. Previously the Mayor announced the campaign in February during the State of the Community Address. He offered the project was an extension of the City’s mantra of being "A Caring Community," and follows on the discussion with the faith community to campaign for a civil society.
"The One City, Our City, My City campaign is something all can be involved in whether you live in Jacksonville or not. It simply asks you to participate in caring about your neighbor, about open lines of communication, about treating others with respect. It’s about listening to different points of view and tolerance. It’s a time to apply our faith to our actions in the community."
"We’ve all seen on the national level how divisive these times can be. For Jacksonville, we want to show how together we can be. How we can care about each other. I’m asking all congregations, all Citizens to join with me. All groups and organizations and even other governments. All to join in this campaign for a new civil society. One of tolerance, caring and action. One City, Our City, My City."
Jacksonville Mayor, Sammy Phillips - February 2017
