Tired of feeling like your voice doesn’t matter? You’ve come to the right place. Civic Genius events will jumpstart your civic engagement, whether it’s learning how to impact what your government, connecting with others to find workable solutions, or understanding why the most important issues are also the most complicated.

Civics for Everyone

No matter how much you know or what you want to learn, we’ve got your back. These events are designed to give you a 360-degree view of the issues, better understand your government, and learn what you can do to make a difference. On any given week, tune in for easy breakdowns, Q&As, workshops, and in-depth discussions on the issues you care about.

Ready to go deeper? Join a Deliberative Democracy event to dive into a conversation with people who want to move past partisanship and toward problem-solving. Learn to weigh the pros and cons of different policy ideas, connect with others who care more about problem-solving than politics, and bring your ideas to your elected officials. You’ll walk away feeling equipped to take informed action.
