iCivics champions equitable, nonpartisan civic education so that the practice of democracy is learned by each new generation. With this grant, iCivics will use the Educating for American Democracy Roadmap to co-design openly licensed instructional materials with a national cohort of educators. The instructional materials will be localized and piloted in partnership with three school districts across the country. (Substrategy: Sustainable Systems)

Grants to this Grantee
for support of a Civic Education convening
Over many years, access to quality and equal civic education has declined in America, adding to current challenges of democratic knowledge and engagement. This grant will support a convening led by iCivics – founded in 2009 by Justice Sandra Day O'Connor, and now the largest civic education provider in the country - and others, to fuel momentum for a new civic education movement. The convening will gather key constituencies capable of funding and leading this work in order to showcase success and innovation in the sector, and raise visibility for civic education.
