Ask Arlington: Community Relations Commission’s Kindness Initiative

“Ask Arlington” is a show dedicated to answering the questions you have about what’s happening in our city.

Each week, on the City’s social media pages, we’ll let you know what the topic of the “Ask Arlington” episode will be. All you have to do is post your question and we’ll do our best to get it answered during our show.

This week’s show features Devan Allen, chair of the City’s Community Relations Commission to answer your questions about the “Experience the Kindness of Our American Dream City” campaign.

The Commission, a 15-member group of residents appointed by the City Council, is working to spread awareness of the City’s core values of compassion and kindness by promoting amicable relations and fostering understanding between different cultures and communities.

As part of the initiative, residents and visitors are encouraged to report random acts of kindness through the City’s free mobile app, Ask Arlington.

The app allows users, who can remain anonymous, to upload photos and videos to provide more information about the act of kindness.

The Ask Arlington app can be downloaded from the Apple or Android app stores. Once downloaded, open the app. Then tap on the “Submit a Request” button to report an act of kindness.

The City’s Office of Communication develops programming for MyArlingtonTV. Viewers can find MyArlingtonTV programs on the following cable systems: Spectrum Channel 16 and AT&T U-Verse channel 99, and streaming capabilities at www.arlington-tx.gov.

All episodes are also available on the City’s YouTube channelFacebook page and Twitter account.
