The Diversity Quality of Life Indicators help us measure an Alexandria that celebrates racial, ethnic and gender diversity and supports people of all ages and abilities.

What are Quality of Life Indicators?

The Partnership for a Healthier Alexandria is collaborating wtih ACT for Alexandria and Virginia Tech to develop a better way to inform key decisions in Alexandria – through “quality of life indicators.” Quality of life indicators are the answers to the question, “What matters most to the people who live in Alexandria?”

How do I vote?

To vote for the indicators in this category, you must register on ACTion Alexandria. You have a total of 10 votes to assign in each indicator category, and can assign those votes to as many or as few indicators in each category as you like. Simple click on the "Add Your Vote" link under each solution to vote.

What will you do with my responses?

Your votes will be collected and combined with feedback from two Speak Up! Take ACTion! townhall meetings and summarized on ACTion Alexandria by the sponsoring organizations on April 18th. For more information on how the Quality of Life Indicators project, visit Community Health Assessment of MAPP.
