The Arizona We Want

CFA believes the voices of Arizonans provide a solid foundation on which to build a positive agenda for the future. Through close listening to Arizonans, communities, and leaders across the state, we created The Arizona We Want, a shared vision of success based on what matters most to Arizonans that expresses their highest aspirations and hopes for the future. The Arizona We Want is comprised of seven Shared Public Values that the broad and representative majority of Arizonans agree are essential to a prosperous future for all. 

Arizonans want a world-class education for all, to live in healthy and vibrant communities, and to have rewarding jobs that use all our talents and help our economy thrive. Arizonans are committed to stewardship of our state’s natural beauty and resources for generations to come, and believe in equity and justice for all. CFA’s goal is to ensure that the public values we share are realized for all Arizonans. Together we can build The Arizona We Want.
