Experience the Kindness of The American Dream City

Mayor Williams has challenged Arlington to document 400,000 acts of kindness by June 2018. That’s about one documented act for each person who lives in our great city! This effort, known as the Kindness Initiative, is well underway and has already had a positive affect on our City. The Community Relations Commission, appointed by the Arlington City Council, is a team of Arlington Residents who’ve volunteered to promote, share and celebrate the Kindness Initiative.

What is an act of kindness?

An act of kindness is an expression or action given from one to another that stretches beyond, but may also include, common courtesy. Acts of kindness are happening all around Arlington, and here is how YOU can help Arlington reach our goal of 400,000 acts of kindness.

When you see an act of kindness, document it one of the following ways:

  1. Use the Ask Arlington App
  2. Use the Ask Arlington web page
  3. Tweet or post using #ArlingtonKindness and @cityofarlington

The free 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.

Kindness is worth recognizing, and sharing your experiences will help others pursue opportunities to be kind, too!
