CivXNow Open Forum: Equity in Civic Education

Tuesday, October 20th | 5-6:15pm ET

Where are the opportunities to actively pursue equity in our organizations and the field? During these historic times we are being called by our constituents to engage in creative solutions that help us tackle the realities today’s students are facing in the classroom and beyond. Realizing that many of us sit somewhere along the continuum from how to successfully implement equity in civics programming to understanding what equity in civics means to your organization, CivXNow is facilitating space to explore this critical issue as a field. We don’t have all the answers but will share some insights from the Equity in Civics Steering Committee; a project supported by the Hewlett Foundation and in partnership with Generation Citizen, which has been focused on equity over the past year.

Join Verneé Green of Mikva Challenge, Kei Kawashima-Ginsberg of CIRCLE, and Andrew Wilkes of Generation Citizen and moderator Amber Coleman-Mortley of iCivics for a collaborative discussion. This is not a panel; rather an exchange between organizations. Guests are encouraged to bring their success stories, burning questions, insights, and expertise to the event.

Help shape the conversation by letting us know what steps your organization is taking to address both internal and external diversity, equity, and inclusion by filling out the brief survey here.
