Join us for Civic Saturday: Rekindling Our Faith

About this Event

In moments like these that call for courage, hope, and resolve, we must connect and fortify ourselves in community with others. In that spirit, we invite you to join together for Civic Saturday on November 7.

At the very first Civic Saturday in November 2016, over 200 people packed into the basement of Elliott Bay Bookstore in Seattle to create a new civic ritual. Four years have passed, hundreds of Civic Saturdays have now taken place, and yet our reason for coming together remains the same. We meet to provide each other with space to pause, to reflect on our hopes and fears, and to decide how we want to live with character as citizens of our democracy. No matter the outcome of the election this November, we each will play a role in supporting a strong democracy in the days and years to come. This will be a special gathering as we mark our four-year anniversary—the moment where we began coming together in this way to rededicate ourselves to the practice of becoming powerful, responsible citizens. Let us recommit and join together again on November 7 at our virtual Civic Saturday.

How to Participate

Join Civic Saturday on YouTube Live on November 7 at 11 am PT / 2 pm ET. Then we’ll talk in small groups with people like you across the country afterward in Civic Circles on Zoom. (You will receive links to both in the confirmation email after you sign up.)

What happens at Civic Saturday? We'll gather as friends and strangers to hear poetry, readings of civic texts, sing together with a local musician, share thoughts and ideas, and hear a "civic sermon" from Citizen University CEO Eric Liu. Learn more about Civic Saturday and sign up for our email newsletter on our website: citizenuniversity.us.

Please email taneum@citizenuniversity.us if you have any questions.
