My Civic Day (from the Illinois Center for Civic Education)

10:00 AM - 01:00 PM

LOCATION: Park Ridge Library 1st Floor Meeting Room (phone # is not the Library)
20 S. Prospect Avenue (corner of Touhy and Prospect)
Park Ridge, IL , 60068

(312) 213-9787


Join the Illinois Center for Civic Education and our special guest Mo Khan, as we play games, watch movies, read books, and much more to learn what it means to live in America and what it takes to be a great American citizen. Civics means citizen, so take this opportunity to learn about the history that has shaped America, and how our rights and responsibilities continue to shape it!

What is Civics? It seems complicated, doesn't it? Not really though. In fact, civic activities surround us every day. It is all about our relationships with our government and community as citizens. It values knowing our presidents just as much as knowing how and when to raise our voice for positive change.

In the last hour of My Civic Day, Mo Khan, a law student at Loyola, will stop by to talk about his own experience with civic learning and how it has taught him to be engaged in his community so much so that he's has decided to campaign for election as one of our state representatives.
