"During the pandemic, We the People was one of the few things that got me to think of something rather than just the chaos that surrounded us. This was a great experience and something I will never forget... We the People will be a memory that will prolong as I progress to become a lawyer someday. I hope you have realized you lit a fire in my generation that we do have entitlement to speak about our political beliefs." - Alben Marco, St. Richard's Episcopal School

Civic Education Task Force
The Foundation and Lt. Gov. Suzanne Crouch, chair of Indiana’s civic education task force, released their recommendations to improve civic education opportunities and practices for Hoosiers. The report can be found here, and a recording of the press conference about the report is here.
“These recommendations identify areas that Indiana can improve in, innovate in and restructure within the field of civic education,” Crouch said. “I look forward to assisting policymakers and community stakeholders in implementing these recommendations over the coming years and to improve civic education opportunities for all Hoosiers in their communities and schools.”
