Join Us for the CT Civic Ambassadors Summit

November 1, 2017


Join us as Connecticut Civic Ambassadors share their stories, best practices, and civic innovations to create opportunities for civic action and participation in Connecticut. Learn about the importance of “civic health” and civic participation for our communities, state, and democracy. Find out how parents, high school and college students, and civic leaders are building a strong culture of civic participation in our state. Get a toolkit with resources that will help you become engaged and engage others in a variety of civic projects and opportunities.
