2023 Annual National Conference on Citizenship

December 1, 2023

The Institute for Citizens & Scholars team attended the 2023 Annual National Conference on Citizenship (NCoC) on Thursday, November 30, 2023, in Washington, D.C. Leaders in the civic field and beyond worked together in-person to explore ways to strengthen our democracy and discuss technology’s role in the future of citizenship in America. Several of our staff members spoke on panels and hosted a measurement workshop to help peers apply the framework of our Mapping Civic Measurement report. Here’s a snapshot of our involvement:

  • Raj Vinnakota, President, shared his thoughts on the “The Future of Civic Learning” panel
  • Jessica Sutter, Chief of Learning Initiatives, leveraged our national survey on the “Using Data to Measure Civic Health and Impacts” panel
  • Debi Ghate, Executive Fellow, and Anna Gallos, Program Associate, led the interactive session How Should We Define and Measure Civic Health, Readiness, and Opportunity at the Local Level.”

Watch Raj’s conversation below with David Bobb, President of the Bill of Rights Institute, and Louise Dubé, CEO of iCivics. Moderated by David Sander, Mayor of Rancho Cordova, CA, the panel explores the civic skills necessary for young people to become informed and engaged citizens and ways we can reimagine civic education.
