The National Conference on Citizenship is always an important gathering of Americans who strive to improve our nation’s civic life. This year, the Tisch College of Civic Life at Tufts University is an equal partner in sponsoring and planning the conference. It will be highly interactive and will focus on issues of diversity, equity, and inclusion. I urge allies and colleagues to join us there. The official invitation follows:
Are you concerned about civic life in America? Are you frustrated by fractured communities, divisive politics, and processes that exclude many of our people? Do you feel we can do better? Do you have solutions you want to share with others?
Then join fellow citizens, government leaders, and innovative entrepreneurs who are working to design and support engaged and resilient communities at the 2016 Annual Conference on Citizenship in Washington, DC.
The 2016 conference is Co-hosted by the Jonathan M. Tisch College of Civic Life at Tufts University and will specifically focus on issues of diversity, equity, and inclusion in civic life. Unless we make progress on these issues, we cannot move our country forward.
The 2016 conference will be highly interactive. Participants will help shape the agenda for civic renewal in America and will leave with contacts and practical ideas to strengthen their own work. There will be opportunities to address unresolved and contested issues in civic life.
The National Conference on Citizenship draws practitioners in fields like; democracy and political participation, service, civic education, community development, community organizing, public deliberation, health and wellness, youth development and workforce development, public arts and humanities, collaborative governance and work with government agencies, civic technology, and social entrepreneurship, and people from other fields interested in improving America’s civic life.
