Event description

Description

Citizen University's Civic Saturday is headed to Portland, Maine!

During a time of such disconnection and cynicism taking place in civic life, Civic Saturday is designed to be a salve for the civic soul — a place to come together in civic community, be inspired and encouraged to reflect and connect, and create new civic traditions that are joyful and communal.

What happens at Civic Saturday? We'll gather as friends and strangers to hear readings, come together in song, share thoughts and ideas, and hear a "civic sermon" from civic innovator and author Eric Liu.

The first Civic Saturday was held just four days after the 2016 election, in direct response to the need people had to be together, in a room face-to-face, to reflect on and rededicate ourselves to the values and practices of being a contributing member of civic life in the United States. We've been holding Civic Saturday ever since.

Join us as we bring this program to Portland to continue nurturing a spirit of shared civic purpose across the country. This event is free and open to all!

This Civic Saturday is produced by Citizen University in partnership with the Portland Library.
