The Civics Center is an organization dedicated to encouraging young people to increase civic engagement and use their voting power to change their communities. They provide resources and assistance to educate, organize, and advocate for voter participation among high school graduates. The Civics Center has led voter registration weeks nationwide, and continues their work remotely. From non-partisan education on the civic engagement to advocacy for equal rights voting legislation, the Civics Center is working to ensure the future of voting rights is safe for future voters.

Dylan Morrissey, Director of Youth Programs, will be joined by Vicki Shapiro, Director of Special Initiatives, to discuss the importance of ballot access and creating change through civic action.
Join Zoom Meeting
“Civic Change, Power, and Voice: Lessons From the Community” was conceived as a chance for students to learn from activists, scholars, and community organizers on the front lines of enacting change with an emphasis on civic action. We’ll be hearing from a wide range of speakers with diverse backgrounds, allowing a fuller picture of the various faces of civic responsibilities and opportunities students may pursue in community activism. This event was supported by Strategic Initiative Funds from the Campus Life Committee.
