Free Webinar: Civic Skills in Civic Space: Libraries and Civic Education

Are you a librarian with a passion for civic education and the future of our democracy? The EveryLibrary Institute and the CivXNow Coalition invite you to a webinar to learn about new paths for active civic engagement in public libraries. The CivXNow Coalition, powered by iCivics, is the nation's largest non-partisan force dedicated to reviving civics education and renewing democracy. In this webinar, we will unpack several important opportunities for library leaders to strengthen their civic programming and learn about new public policy proposals. 

Webinar Topics:

  1. Introduce CivXNow's mission to librarians, highlighting our cross-partisan efforts to champion civic literacy.
  2. Discover and connect with coalition members and other librarians actively engaged in civics, fostering a collaborative network for future initiatives.
  3. Learn about the significance of National Civic Learning Week, celebrating the vital role of civic education in our democracy
  4. Gain insight into the transformative state-level policy work and coalition efforts that are reshaping civic education.

The webinar will also include a Spotlight on proposed Congressional legislation, the Civics Secures Democracy Act, and its pivotal role to revitalizing history and civics instruction to meet the challenges of our times.

Ace Parsi, Director of Coalition Engagement

Abbie Kaplan, Associate Director of Federal Policy
