This session focuses on the civic superpower Defend.

Defenders keep the movement moving and stand up for what they believe in, like the 250,000 students who boycotted the Chicago Public Schools in 1963 to protest racial segregation. Take part in a Civics in Chicago group mural and the Sharing Civic Love activity, then tour the Museum with the Displayed: Civic Action @ CHM guide. Round out your visit with a screening of the film ’63 Boycott (2017).

Civic Sundays @ CHM highlight the different civic superpowers Chicagoans have used when shaping our city. Each Civic Sunday will have a civic superpower theme with a related film screening, an opportunity to engage directly with community organizations, an art installation, and more. Through hands-on history and films, find and use your own civic superpower!

All Civic Season events are FREE admission days for Illinois residents.
