Civic Education as a Matter of National Security

March 9, 2023 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

EST  | Virtual
Civics is not simply an education issue but a matter of national security. Overcoming domestic divisiveness that threatens national security requires a citizenry that independently processes information, engages effectively with different viewpoints, and commits to the betterment of the whole; E Pluribus Unum. Educators and members of the military community play a critical role in fostering a healthy democracy through civics education. They serve as valued leaders whose skills and perspectives help chart the path forward for all of us.

During this panel, you will learn from individuals in the military and educator community as they share their perspectives on the importance of civics education in today’s moment; and how we work with the next generation to foster civic skills and dispositions through service and leadership.

Featured Speakers:
• Holly Brown, Ph.D., STEM Program Analyst Contractor, DoD STEM, National Defense Education Program (moderator)
• Claire Gibson, President-Elect, Military Spouse J.D. Network
• Lieutenant Colonel (Ret.) Walter Henry, JROTC Instructor, Mobile County, AL
• Ashley Scott, Policy and Innovation Coordinator, Blue Star Families
