Our Civic Season

“The youth of our nation are the heirs of our democracy and have in them the power to shape and strengthen it.”

Anthea M. Hartig

Elizabeth MacMillan Director, National Museum of American History, kicking off Civic Season with a childrens’ naturalization ceremony on Flag Day

“The chance to team up with others just as committed to civics, both historical and contemporary, to ignite curiosity was a gift. Though the fellowship is over, the mission continues. Here’s to staying engaged citizens and supporting the institutions preserving our shared past.”

Lex Stewart

2023 Civic Season Design Fellow

“Civic Season inspired me to find ways to stay civically engaged throughout the year.” 

Gabriel Cruz

Co-Host of Democracy Vibe Check: The Civic Season Podcast on WABE Atlanta

“Civic Season is exactly what we as a country need right now. We often think of the younger generation (or really, any generation) as a monolith, but the truth is, everyone connects with civic values in different ways. Civic Season doesn’t tell us what we should think or do about our current national struggles, but it does help us see that we all have a role in moving forward.”

Claire Haley

Vice President of Special Projects, Atlanta History Center and author of “Your Guide to an ATL Civic Season”

“We are now in the midst of Civic Season… when we encourage citizens of all ages to participate in our democracy and engage with public history institutions. I was heartened this past weekend to see the lines around the block at the National Archives filled with thousands of engaged citizens.”

Colleen Shogan

Archivist of the United States, kicking off Civic Season

“Teachers know we need to support the young people who will inherit our young nation. Civic Season meets the moment for Gen Z by connecting them with the online and IRL resources they need to be active participants in our democracy.” 

Lauren Cella

History Teacher and Creator

“Whatever your passion, embracing your curiosity and being open to learning will allow for a meaningful exploration during your Civic Season.”
