First Annual Connecticut Civic Summit

As people throughout the state and country lose faith in public institutions, it is more important than ever to engage residents with each other and with their government. That is why Everyday Democracy, in partnership with Secretary of the State The Honorable Denise Merrill, launched the Connecticut Civic Ambassadors Initiative in September this year.  CT Civic Ambassadors are catalysts for civic action in Connecticut toward creating stronger civic health and REAL socioeconomic benefits both in terms of social capital and community well-being.

Civic Ambassador Program Launches: Engaging Students and Residents Throughout the State

CT Civic Ambassadors will be the messengers of the importance of civic education and engagement by Connecticut residents and the catalysts for civic action that can lead to stronger civic health and REAL socioeconomic benefits, in terms of social capital and community well-being. Speakers will share their experiences of engagement in civic work in their communities, and partners will share how to best access resources.
