Active vs. Activist Citizenship

March 13 @ 3:30 pm - 4:30 pm

EST  | Virtual

Please join us virtually on Wednesday March 13th from 3:30 – 4:30pm ET for a dynamic discussion on fostering informed and engaged citizens in today’s polarized climate. Educators and organizations committed to civic learning and engagement often feel hesitant, fearing they’ll be labeled political. Meanwhile, parents may wonder about the distinction between active participation and advocacy, and whether their child’s teacher is equipped to navigate these waters. Our panel will dive deep into the nuances of “active citizenship” versus “activist citizenship,” exploring how these concepts intersect and sometimes clash in educational settings. Don’t miss out on this spirited debate as our experts dissect the tensions and opportunities inherent in shaping the citizens of tomorrow.

This is a virtual panel and the viewing link will be emailed to you prior to the event.
