Civvys Nominations Are Open! Also a civic challenge and another job opportunity

Posted by on June 13, 2018 at 4:12 PM

As you may know, we co-hosted the first ever American Civic Collaboration Awards last year, and it was a big success. We loved reading our inspiring nominees’ stories and the work our members are doing to help heal divides and improve communities in America.

We are gearing up for the second year of the Civvys, and wanted to let you know that we are now accepting nominations! Nominations will be open through Wednesday, July 11th. Start thinking about who you might want to nominate, and -- when you're ready -- head to to submit their names and information. Please help us get the word out to your friends, colleagues, and networks who may be interested in submitting a nomination. Winners and finalists will be celebrated at the National Conference on Citizenship in Washington, D.C. in October.

Also, if you’d like to help support the Civvys, we are always looking for people and organizations interested in getting involved as sponsors. As always, you can follow the latest updates at and on social media using #Civvys.

In other news,

  • Jefferson Center has started a campaign called the Local Civic Challenge. How it works is you sign up and they will send you mini-challenges to help you become a more engaged citizen. Here is the announcement blog, here is the first challenge (last week was the first week), and here is the signup form.
  • Inspire U.S. is hiring a Western Regional Coordinator, based in San Diego, to organize and coordinate voter registration in California and provide support in Nevada and Arizona. This is a great opportunity to join a highly accomplished organization.

As always, thank you for your support.
