Announcing the "Civic Season"

Thurs., June 3 * 10 PM ET / 7 PM PT on Clubhouse

This week in History Club, we welcome the Smithsonian’s Made By Us project to announce a new national initiative, the “Civic Season.”

The “Holiday Season” falls between Thanksgiving and New Year’s. We’re proposing that between June 19th (Juneteenth) and July 4th, America celebrates a “Civic Season.”

We envision a “Civic Season” wherein Americans from all backgrounds and heritages commit to civic engagement and strengthening democracy.

What activities could be part of a “Civic Season”? Ideas could include:

  • Registering people to vote

  • Volunteering with a local nonprofit

  • Getting involved with your local veterans’ service organization

  • Visiting a local museum or historical society

  • Hosting a book club to discuss a book related to American history or civics

  • Contributing to a charity dedicated to freedom and democracy

  • + Other ideas to be posted on

Join us on Clubhouse tonight, Thursday at 10 ET. We’ll do a short Q&A with the Civic Season team, then open it up to a broader conversation. (Add to calendar.)

See you on Clubhouse, Thursday, June 3 at 10 PM ET.
