National Summit on Civic Education

National Summit on Civic Education

Mount Vernon  |  November 10 – 11, 2022

We find ourselves at a critical moment. For too long our nation’s history and civics have been neglected in the K-12 space, leaving them vulnerable to ideological movements in education. Increasingly, leading actors in civic education reform either ignore or promote these troubling developments.

A number of public-spirited philanthropists and organizations remain who provide schools, educators, and students with alternative opportunities and resources that deepen knowledge and foster attachment to our nation’s founding principles. Such organizations need to find new ways to work together.

In partnership with DonorsTrust, Philanthropy Roundtable, and Bradley Impact Fund, the Jack Miller Center presents a two-day conference to gather civics organizations and donors committed to centering founding principles in K-12 civic education.

The conference will be hosted at George Washington’s Mount Vernon estate on November 10-11, 2022. Sessions will focus on generating new ideas for collaboration among like-minded civics partners with the goal of nationwide impact.
