Join Fix Democracy First on Wednesday, March 13th @ 5 pm PT/8 pm ET for a special Democracy Happy Hour Civic Learning Week presentation with Generation Citizen CitizenEmpowering Youth in Our Democracy Through Project-Based Civics

Are you a current or retired educator?
We need you to join CivXNow's K-12 civic education project

The CivXNow Coalition, of which Fix Democracy First Education Fund is a proud member, believes that by educating young people about civics, we can prepare them to be more informed, engaged members of our constitutional democracy. But in order to realize this, we know that civic education must be prioritized in our nation, ensuring each and every student receives the highest quality education and educators have the resources and professional development necessary to ensure that. 

This is why we’re inviting you to join Teachers Advancing Civic Learning (TACL), a grassroots network of educators seeking to advance and strengthen civic learning at the local, state, and national levels. 

We understand that people are extremely busy, so our goal is to make this program easy and accessible. Your level of involvement is completely up to you. For every action we ask you to take (e.g., writing an email or signing onto a letter of support), we commit to doing most of the heavy lifting, providing templates and other resources to make your involvement as simple as possible. We will also provide training opportunities, empowering you to take more complex actions, such as speaking with your legislator or school board.

 Reasons to join Teachers Advancing Civic Learning (TACL):

Here are a few reasons why educators might want to engage in this work:

  • Form deeper relationships with peers, network with those at other schools, and hear from those who have been successful in advocating for civic and history learning.
  • Build skills and leverage resources for engaging decision makers at the national, state, and local levels through synchronized and as synchronized trainings, seminars, and modules.
  • Work directly with leading organizations in the civic learning field.
  • Be part of the larger movement to advance civic education. 
  • Model civic behavior for your students.

If you’re interested in participating, please complete this form. If you have any questions, please feel free to respond to this email directly, and we will get back to you as soon as possible. We look forward to working with you to help make civic learning a priority for our students and our nation!
