Learn more about Civic Nation's initiatives

Civic Nation leads initiatives that empower people to be agents of change in their own lives. We inspire with culturally relevant content that captures attention and sparks action. We educate by giving people direct access to information, tools and resources on issues that affect them. We activate people to organize their communities by supplying toolkits, campaign materials and digital tools.

Our pillars

We address public issues and keep them at the forefront of dialogue and policy.

Our initiatives work on key social issues: access to education, gender equality, civic engagement and dismantling hate/discrimination. Rather than approach these issues only with the intent to change policy, we are building grassroots movements to change the world—from the ground up.

Education Access
Every person deserves to have equal and equitable opportunities to take full advantage of their education, at every institutional university, trade school, apprenticeship program and more.
Civic Engagement
The issues facing our increasingly world are becoming more complex. A key to making American democracy work is our willingness to create and maintain a variety of civic associations and opportunities.
Gender Equality
We need a different America for all women to survive and thrive — and we're working to collectively to achieve it and get there together.
Social Justice
We work in unique and innovative ways to create a more inclusive, equitable America for all people, no matter what they look like, where they’re from, how they worship, or who they love.
