GENERATION CITIZEN BELIEVES ALL STUDENTS HAVE THE RIGHT TO CIVICS EDUCATION THAT PREPARES THEM TO PARTICIPATE IN OUR DEMOCRACY.

Beyond the Ballot | The Time is Now

We want to begin a path to rebuild the foundations of our democracy. Our initiative is meant to teach, inspire, and empower the next generation to engage with—and lead—the political system.
