A ton of museums and nonprofit organizations are trying to inaugurate a tradition they are calling “Civic Season”:
a three-week period that stretches from Flag Day on June 14 through the Fourth of July, and includes Juneteenth and Pride Month… The project aims to ask Americans, and young people in particular, to stretch the usual bounds of the red-white-and-blue festivities to include a new mission of reflection and civic engagement.
I’m a bit skeptical of it catching on, especially since that’s the end of the school year.
However, they have created a website chockful of related activities, many of which can be used at other times of the year.
I’m adding this info to The Best Websites For Learning About Civic Participation & Citizenship.
