Civics 101

April 13, 2017 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

 

…Because 8th grade Civics class was a long time ago, and we could all use a refresher on how politics works, how we can constructively get involved, and how we can learn together as a community.

FREE TICKETS REQUIRED: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/civics-101-colorado-springs-tickets-32961717384

Designed as an interactive workshop will you can learn a ton, have a beer and good eats, and interact with your neighbors & with experts, Citizens Project is pairing with Said & Done to present this local iteration of the polypartisan series of events that has already sold out in Denver, Longmont, and is going nationwide.

Come “back to school” (in the Ivywild Gym) to refresh your memory about these 4 important areas of American life:

*WHO HAS THE POWER?
Our three branches of government and what you may not know about how they interact

*KNOW YOUR RIGHTS
An exploration of The Bill of Rights

*ALL POLITICS IS LOCAL
How we can most effectively impact our communities

*EFFECTIVE ACTIVISM
What tactics and actions work?

***TICKETS ARE REQUIRED***
Follow link to reserve your free tickets below; we anticipate that this limited capacity event will sell out.

Citizens Project spotlights issues in the Pikes Peak region and mobilizes people to strengthen the traditional values of our nation: equal rights, individual freedoms, separation of church and state, civic engagement, and respect for diversity.

Said & Done is a coalition of volunteer community organizers focused on programming that helps grow the confidence and knowledge of new activists so they can be effective in driving peaceful change in their local, state and national communities through their political action and resistance
