Grants to this Grantee
for promoting equity in civics education  
Generation Citizen is a national organization working to transform civics education so that young people are equipped and inspired to exercise their civic power. It partners with school districts to provide real-world competency-based civic learning experiences for students while advocating for policies that ensure these students receive an equity-centered civics education. This grant takes the next step in an Equity in Civics field-building initiative by convening a national steering committee to provide guidance to school districts and civics education organizations, create toolkits and other resources that civics education groups can use to promote equity in civics education, and host conferences to promote equity in civics education.
