First Annual Summit on Civic Readiness: Preparing Democracy-Ready New York Students

March 7, 2023 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm

EST  | Virtual

The Summit on Civic Readiness aims to raise awareness of New York students’ right under the state constitution to an education that prepares them for civic participation and to highlight the importance of civic readiness for our state and our children’s futures. We hope to build public support for expanding these opportunities in all New York K-12 schools during this critical time in our nation’s history. Our audience will include educators, advocates, policymakers, students, parents, and other stakeholders. Dr. Betty A. Rosa, Commissioner of the New York State Education Department, will join us for this important discussion.
