Civic Saturday: A ritual that feels more important than ever
More than 100 people have been trained since the fellowship began in 2018, including Rural Assembly Director Whitney Kimball Coe. (Read about Whitney & other fellows experiences in this New York Times article about the fellowship.)
“The Civic Saturday ritual feels more important than ever as we struggle to ensure the future of our democracy,” Coe said. “Especially during this time of pandemic and physical distancing, opportunities to celebrate civic power and engagement are limited. Civic Saturday can bring us together with neighbors and community members in a virtual space, and for an hour, the story we tell one another is about us and ours, rather than me and mine.”
