Growing bipartisan consensus recognizes that civic education, equitably delivered, is a critical component of rebuilding the civic strength of our country. To improve and strengthen civic education, state policies must be aligned to this goal.

On Sept. 21-22, CivXNow, a coalition of over 170 partner organizations from diverse viewpoints focused on improving K-12 in and out-of-school civic education, is hosting a virtual summit to encourage and support policy action.

Join Civic Nebraska at the CivXNow Policy Summit spotlighting the need for civic education and discussing opportunities to accelerate progress during 2021-22 legislative sessions. The Summit gathers state legislators, state education leaders, philanthropic leaders, press, and other influencer groups including parents, teachers, and administrators.

The program will feature diverse perspectives on civic education policymaking, such as:

  • A bipartisan panel of state legislators from Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, and Massachusetts
  • Keynote discussions with Former Secretary of Defense Bob Gates and Filmmaker Ken Burns
  • Remarks by David French, Senior Editor at The Dispatch; Governor Kate Brown (D-OR); Former Governor Thomas H. Kean (R-NJ); as well as the co-sponsor of the bipartisan Civics Secures Democracy Act, Congresswoman Rosa DeLauro (D-CT).

Attendees also can participate in breakout groups and state-specific working sessions to connect on shared interests as well as discuss strategies for implementation. See a full schedule of the panels and sessions.

Please join us to support the movement for high-quality civic education. The stage has been set for strengthened state civic education systems – and now is our time to catalyze that momentum across the country.
