Civics Learning Project has launched a new cohort program for the 2019-20 School Year!
In honor of Abigail Scott Duniway, Oregon’s pioneer for universal suffrage and an intrepid journalist, activist, and organizer, we have formed a year-long cohort of Civics Educators from around the state. Our purpose is to build a professional learning community that learns together about how the Constitution has changed over time with regard to issues that affect our students every day. We will practice fresh strategies around issues which will include the 100th anniversary of gender suffrage, the upcoming election year, and the evolution of student rights and participation.
This year, 14 Oregon counties are represented by Abby Cohort participants:
