Civics Workshops

You don’t have to attend all three workshops in this series but you’ll probably want to! This is civics made relevant and interesting!

This September join us for a series of three workshops at your choice of three locations!

Session 1: Civics 101
We’ll have a lively presentation on how government works at each level and how each citizen can become involved!

Session 2: Political Literacy, Fake News, and Personality Politics
This session provides ways for voters (1) identify how they feel on important issues and what their values are (2) research candidates, their funding, and their record (3) combat “fake news” and “alternative facts” (4) take action by voting.

Session 3: Mechanics of Voting & Expanding Your Circle of Influence
We will be looking at the November 2018 ballot and offering resources to help you make decisions. We will hear from former office holders to understand what some of these jobs are like to do. Finally we will discuss ways to stay civil while talking about politics with friends and family.
