2017 Annual Conference on Citizenship, October 19-20 in Washington, DC
The 2017 Annual Conference took an honest look at a number of challenges facing our communities today—from a dearth of civic learning, to the raging opiate epidemic, to the persistent opportunity gap confronting our nation’s youth in marginalized communities. Collectively, conference participants considered what it will take to repair the civic fabric of our communities, begin closing the opportunity gap, and focus on civic learning to support both. Going forward, work will focus on tangible ways philanthropy and other leaders can support and invest in civic learning and civic health as mechanisms to influence equity and opportunity outcomes.
