Reflections on the Events at the Capitol

All of us at the Institute for Citizens & Scholars were shocked and saddened by the events at the Capitol on January 6, 2021. So were some of the young people in our network, as you’ll hear in this four-minute video.

They also give us hope as we recommit ourselves to developing citizens and ensuring a resilient democracy—which requires all of us. Please join us in working toward that goal across all of our programs, and please feel free to share this message with others.

Citizens & Scholars prepares leaders and engages networks of people and organizations to meet urgent education challenges. The overarching goal is to shape an informed, productively engaged, and hopeful citizenry.
