What We Do

We are transforming how civics is taught by providing real-world civics education with an equity-centered approach.

Generation Citizen

We are part of a movement for excellence and equity in civic education.


We build partnerships and cultivate coalitions to advocate for standards and legislation at the local, state, and federal level that support bold investments in civic education.

Generation Citizen Works To:

  • Support state-based coalitions
  • Foster a supportive, responsive civics education ecosystem
  • Promote culturally-relevant democracy education by engaging diverse voices from democracy, civil rights, and education organization, emphasizing youth and educator voices

Key Initiatives


All students deserve access to a comprehensive, experiential civics education that prepares them to participate in their communities and in our democracy.



50×2026 is a campaign to elevate comprehensive, experiential civics education in all 50 states by 2026, the 250th anniversary of the signing of the Declaration of Independence.

Alongside our coalition partners and advisory council, we work to advance legislation and policy research that protects and prioritizes quality civics education and to support local leaders and allies working to change the national conversation around civics.
