BRING CIVIC EDUCATION TO ALL SCHOOLS NOW

Recent events have vividly shown that trust in our nation’s democratic institu- tions and constitutional values is frayed. The fabric of our democracy is clearly in need of repair.

This timely webinar series explores how together we can begin to mend our democracy. Civic education K-12 is key.

Here in New York, our state constitution requires schools to prepare all students to be active civic participants. These webinars focus on how to ensure every New York school can carry out its important civic mission.

Join us, youth leaders, experts, and decision-makers from around the state for this important, free, four-part series as we investigate critical components of civic readiness and talk with New York leaders about how to make the right to

civic readiness a reality.

We’ll be asking for your input during the webinars.

Don’t miss your chance to have your voice heard by the people making decisions about how our children are educated!
