Civic Saturday: JUST, LIKE THAT
June 25 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm
In a time of deep anxiety, disconnectedness, and political polarization, we need a place to come together in civic community to reflect on and rededicate ourselves to the values and practices of being a contributing member of civic life within the United States. Civic Saturday began in Seattle and is now in more than 100 towns and cities across the country – including Lincoln.
At each gathering, we 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. There will be music from Jack Rodenburg of Lincoln, original poetry from a local poet, reading of inspiring “civic texts” from community members, a “civic sermon” from National Civic Saturday Fellow Steve Smith, and time for socializing in “civic circles.”
This gathering is free and open to everyone!
