Check out Donna's interview on OPB's Think Out Loud program from Nov 3, 2020!!
A great way to learn about what Civics for Adults is all about.https://www.opb.org/article/2020/10/30/civics-educator-aims-to-enhance-knowledge-and-engagement-in-political-process/Civics for Adults has gone virtual! See latest list of workshops on the Schedule page!
[Schedule changes frequently.]
Workshops are available for presentation online! The format is a PPT presentation/lecture of just about one hour, followed by a question/discussion time. More information and registration via the Schedule page!
I have to say, this one, from the Citizen Activism workshop, is my favorite:
"Donna provided useful and detailed information that was inspiring! It was in depth, but attainable. I, also, liked the focus on local policies that affect us directly. She encouraged me to be the activist that I have wanted be, but have stopped myself from being. She said to start by doing something simple, but courageous. Thank you for this gift.""The most important political office is that of the private citizen." Justice Louis BrandeisOur 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.
