Taught by Donna Cohen, these four workshops are designed to provide information typically hidden behind the headline-grabbing, background noise of our lives and to encourage utilizing this knowledge to improve our communities and country.
February 7: Misinformation, Fake News and Political Propaganda: We are overwhelmed by messages from politicians, news sources, and other media. Learn to distinguish truth from fiction using critical thinking strategies.
March 7: Citizen Activism 101 – Making Change Happen: Learn strategies for change, including examples of successful advocacy, getting heard, and more.
April 4: The Influence of the Constitution on Civic and Political Conversation: A historical look at the Constitution and its influence on current politics.
May 9: Beyond Voting - Election and Campaign Financing: 20 topics related to our electoral systems and specific ideas for bi-partisan civic and political engagement.
Civics for Adults is presented by the Library Foundation of Hillsboro.
