Our Focus

    • the foundation of our democracy
    • their privileges
    • their responsibilities

Dear Students and Teachers,

We are hopeful that we will be able to have our We the People State Competition (in January) and Project Citizen State Showcase (in May) in person at the Capitol this year. If you plan to participate in either, please let us know and we'll keep you updated. 

Please continue to keep yourself and others safe by:

  • Wearing a mask in large groups
  • Washing your hands regularly and thoroughly
  • Practicing social distancing with unvaccinated and immunocompromised people
  • ​Disinfecting your surfaces regularly​​

For those interested,

Here is a webinar recording on "The Power of Voting: The Electoral College, Gerrymandering, and Suppression" with Michael Li, Senior Counsel for the Brennan Center's Democracy Program
