2017 Annual Conference on Citizenship, October 19-20 in Washington, DC
Join national civic health network partners and other individuals and organizations in taking an honest look at challenges facing our nation and our communities today—from a dearth of civic learning, to the raging opiate epidemic, to the persistent opportunity gap confronting our nation’s youth. Reflecting directly on issues currently consuming our news headlines, this conference brings together civic engagement leaders, practitioners, students, community members, and others in a candid dialogue about the dynamic and turbulent reality we all share. Our nation’s civic fabric has frayed, but the backbone of our country—its people—has demonstrated a resilience in community that has inspired powerful change. This is the work we aim to lift up and amplify. Demonstrate your commitment to the civic health and renewal of our communities! The path forward must be taken together.
