Pass the Mic: Students Discuss Equity in Civics

Are students getting what they need from their civic education? This session will pass the mic to the students, allowing them to share their insights and experiences working with adults to bring equitable change to their civic learning environments. If students are our primary stakeholders, why aren’t we asking them what they think? This session will focus on the impact of the Equity in Civics Youth Fellowship, highlighting student voice as central to the discussion on equity in civic education.
