In a time of deep anxiety, disconnectedness, and political polarization, people need a place to come together in civic community — face-to-face or virtually — to reflect on and rededicate ourselves to the values and practices of being a contributing member in civic life within the United States.

That’s where Civic Saturday comes in. Join us at 11 am CDT Saturday, March 26, on Zoom for Civic Nebraska’s tenth Civic Saturday celebration. Our theme is Begin Again, and we’ll focus on the power of new hope and conviction.

What happens at Civic Saturday? We share music, poetry, readings of civic scripture, and what we call a civic sermon. If these elements sound familiar, it’s because Civic Saturdays are designed to be a civic analog to a faith gathering. We recognize the power of coming together in this way — with a sense of ritual and structure — in service of deepening connectedness and belief. In this case, belief in democracy.

Join us! Click here to save your spot at the gathering, where we’ll connect around the values and practices of being an active citizen, reckon with and reflect on our nation’s creed, and build relationships that create new civic traditions that are joyful and communal. Experience our past Civic Saturdays and learn more about these gatherings here.
