"The most important political office is that of the private citizen." Justice Louis Brandeis
Our democracy is strengthened when citizens have accurate and non-partisan civic knowledge. The goal of Civics for Adults [and Others!] workshops is to provide information typically hidden behind the headline-grabbing, background noise of our lives, to inform citizens about our most essential government and political structures, to support critical thinking skills by illuminating the ways that information may be distorted and to encourage citizen engagement by highlighting the multiple ways that we can influence civic and political life.
My workshops have mostly been presented at public libraries, but private groups also sponsor them. Any group that would like to improve the civic and political literacy, and information literacy, of its members is welcome to inquire about the workshops. High schools students also benefit, especially from the Misinformation and Activism workshops.
Come explore these timely and information-rich presentations.
