Congressional Conferences on Civic Education Print

Download the Congressional Conference Brochure

The Congressional Conference on Civic Education convened annually from 2003 to 2006 as a national gathering for those committed to restoring the historic civic mission of our nation’s schools. Complementing the Center’s Campaign to Promote Civic Education, the four Congressional Conferences initiated and sustained a national movement to strengthen civic education at the state and local levels. Each state was represented at the conferences by delegations of legislators, education policymakers, educators, and concerned citizens. In addition to assembling campaign delegations from each state, the conference drew civic and private-sector leaders and key representatives from national educational organizations.

The conference was hosted by the joint leadership of the United States Congress and was sponsored by the Alliance for Representative Democracy, a partnership of the Center for Civic Education, the National Conference of State Legislatures, and the Center on Congress at Indiana University. The Campaign to Promote Civic Education is now assisting state and local leaders as they work to improve civic education at the state and local levels.
