Connected in Class: A Starting Point & Close Up

Mar 10, 2021

11:30am – 12:15pm CT

The imperative for civic engagement and bipartisanship has never been more urgent. A Starting Point (ASP) is a video-based platform seeking to be a truly unbiased resource for information and civic engagement. Working with students and teachers, the non-profit Close Up Foundation shares a similar mission. The two organizations have teamed up to create ASP HOMEROOM, an educational civic engagement portal. This panel discussion is a must-see for anyone interested in the future of civic education.
