National Civic League
The National Civic League is an organization founded in 1894 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania at a meeting of civic leaders, policy-makers, journalists, and educators (including Theodore Roosevelt, Louis Brandeis, Marshall Field, and Frederick Law Olmsted) to discuss the future of American cities. Originally called the National Municipal League, it aimed to increase the transparency and honesty of city governments, and share knowledge across cities.
It is best known for the All-America City Award, given to 10 communities annually. It also has a Community Services Program, New Politics Program, and Federal-Community Partnership Program.
