Democracy NC's 2020 Civics of Justice Training (9/29/2020)

In 2020, Democracy NC's Civics of Justice series returns to center frustration and devastation around police brutality, racial injustice and the loss of Black Lives and address connections between what’s on the ballot and these important issues.

Civics of Justice began in 2015 as film screenings and dialogues developed by Democracy North Carolina and Working Films to help communities develop a deeper analysis of the relationship between civic engagement and social issues. In 2020, this event series returns to share stories and make connections to:

  • center frustration and devastation around police brutality, racial injustice and the loss of Black Lives,
  • take community input on how to best frame and communicate local challenges and victories,
  • address connections between what’s on the ballot and these important issues,
  • understand how voters can push back to take our power back together and drive civic participation, and
  • discuss ways to help our community understand voting options and increase voter turnout.

Civics of Justice trainings and resources provide “a toolbox of tactics” for breaking the cycle of oppressive practices and policies. This online kit illustrates how working at the local level is especially powerful to impact representation and realities. Resources include:
