The Action Civics Showcase

The annual Mikva Challenge Action Civics Showcase is a cornerstone of our Democracy in Action program and is coming up in two weeks! It brings together hundreds of young people from all over Chicago to share ideas and solutions on critical issues affecting their lives. Please join us in celebrating youth voice and youth action on Tuesday, May 19th, 2015  from 4:00-6:00pm at the Chicago Cultural Center. RSVP here >>

All projects follow our six-step activism process that asks students to examine their communities, identify issues of importance, conduct intensive primary research about these issues, analyze power, develop strategies, and take action to make a positive impact. Our participants show an intense commitment to and sense of ownership over their schools and communities; their solutions are sometimes surprising but always serious.

Take a look at the table below for a breakdown by topic of the 270 unique projects presented by youth leaders at the Action Civics Fair over the last four years.
