On January 25, PACE collaborated with members and partners on a webinar to highlight opportunities for philanthropy to engage in the field of civic learning.

Description: The public sentiment and behaviors surrounding the 2016 Presidential election has led many to call for significant interventions to secure the health of our democracy. Chief among the interventions posited include increases and improvements to civic learning—that is, how young people learn about, engage with, their fellow citizens, communities, and government. This discussion will aim to help philanthropy understand a snapshot of the landscape that exists for civic learning and consider opportunities to engage in the field in new or increased ways.
