Amid a global pandemic, social movements, and economic insecurity, people from all over were discussing key aspects of civic life: voter registration, ways to contact elected officials, rights of protestors, etc. In this conversation, participants will discuss and reflect upon civic education, especially issues of why, when, where, and how we create engaged citizens.
