Civic Life Today

The State of U.S. Civic Engagement

Each year Points of Life measures the level of civic action in the U.S. based on the Civic Circle.

Points of Life developed the Civic Circle both as a framework for practitioners and corporations to encourage civic engagement and as a measure of current engagement levels. The Civic Circle focuses on individual action that can impact the community and society and the report aims to help practitioners and policymakers understand the motivations and behaviors of people with a desire to engage.
