Educating, Engaging, and Empowering People

Watertown Forward is rooted in the belief that we all have an inherent right and responsibility

to make a meaningful difference in our community. 

We started in 2020, with the goal of ensuring that the City's Charter Review process included and reflected robust public discussion

and input. We did this through public "Charter Chats", forums, surveys, newsletters, social and traditional media, and so on. 

The voters approved the revised Charter -- which reflected significant resident input -- in November 2021. 

Now we are focusing on two things. 

First, bringing transparency to the enactment of the Charter changes through our Charter Dashboard.

Second, educating, engaging & empowering residents so that they can raise their voices on other timely government initiatives and issues, and in doing so, help build a brighter future for all who live, work, and play in Watertown.
