Beautification

There are many community-led beautification efforts underway in preparation for the Republican National Convention. These efforts ensure that Cleveland shines as it is put on center stage by 15,000+ members of the national and international media. We invite you to join in by volunteering your time before the Convention to the community-led beautification efforts listed below. With our community coming together, the world will recognize Cleveland as the beautiful city we know and love.
