Looking Back on #GovLove 2021


Roses are red, violets are blue. #GovLove is wrapped up & we can’t wait to do it again with you!

For two weeks in February, we partnered with agencies and programs to spread some love and appreciation across government with a tweet and Valentine’s Day card. Inspired by the paper Valentines we exchanged during grade school, our team wanted to highlight the great work happening across government in a fun, collaborative way. Check out our blog post and listen to Performance.gov’s very own Catie Miller on Engaging Local Government Leaders’ GovLove podcast to learn more about the social media campaign.

We’ve highlighted a few of the posts originally shared on Twitter and LinkedIn to celebrate our partners’ great work and commitment to public service. Feel some of the love below! For a complete look at all of the #GovLove in the air this season, check out the #GovLove hashtag!
