Consider how you’re living like a citizen these days — how you’re showing up for your community and our democracy. Does it feel healthy? Sustainable? Invigorating?
It’s easy to develop unhealthy civic habits when we’re isolated and disconnected. It’s tempting to think ‘that’s not my problem.’ To just keep scrolling or let cynicism take over.
But what would it take for you to start making healthier civic choices? To nourish yourself with meaningful relationships in your community? To unpack and untangle the cynicism and apathy youre feeling and address it head on?
Civic Saturday is a time specifically designed to help us reckon with our waning faith in one another and our democracy. It’s a time to share our doubts and examine the stories we’re telling ourselves. Civic Saturday is a time of civic care – for ourselves and for our community.
On Saturday, December 4, join together with people across the country who also want more connection and shared purpose. Together, we’ll hear music, poetry, and what we call a civic sermon by Eric Liu. Because Civic Saturday is a civic analogue to a faith gathering, we’ll share in fellowship, reflection, and recommitment to our civic faith.
