Civics Education: Embracing Our Shared Humanity

Mar 7, 2022

2:00pm – 3:00pm CT

The events of the past year have made all of us rethink the role of education in preparing our children for an increasingly complex world. The need to expand civics education has found overwhelming bipartisan support in a year that saw deep divisions in the electorate and record voter turnout. During this Meet Up, we'll explore how civics education can be woven throughout the curriculum to foster the competencies students need to be empathetic, engaged citizens in our often-messy democracy.
