MEET THE MOMENT

While the country shut down, you looked around and raised your voice to an America that heard you, saw you and reminded us that there is no “we the people” without all the people. Between Juneteenth and the Fourth of July, it’s time to turn out and turn up the volume on our story—in all of its complexity. We’re imagining a new kind of summer tradition to strengthen our democracy, and we invite you to help us shape it.

IMAGINE WITH US

Start Where You Are Today

As the United States looks to its past to inform its present, and works to create a future that meets its promise, there’s something missing: You.

With national, local and digital opportunities, Civic Season has something for everyone. So whether you have five minutes or a few hours, you have the power to play a role in our democracy.
