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. Civic Saturday began in Seattle and is now in more than 100 cities across the country.
Join us Feb. 18 for a very special Civic Saturday in conjunction with the Nebraska History Museum’s new exhibition, Democracy In America: A Great Leap of Faith. Civic Saturday gathers friends and strangers together to nurture a spirit of shared purpose. 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.
