Join us for our kickoff workshop featuring a panel of civics experts as we look at the gaps in civic engagement vis-à-vis civic education and how we got here. The panel features educators, elected officials, activists, and academics in a lively conversation about the state of civics in our communities across the Southland.
Attendees will launch from the panel to a workshop designed to engage and develop ways to address the barriers to civics. You are invited to roll-up your sleeves and help launch this initiative that will last for the next year and help define civics for Los Angels. We will work toward a more civically engaged Los Angeles, together.
