Lyon Software is excited and honored to be a part of the American Democracy Project’s National Initiative!
Announcing the Campus & Community Civic Health Initiative,
a new 10th anniversary signature program of the American Democracy Project
A Civic Engagement in Action Series Initiative in Partnership with the National Conference on Citizenship (NCoC)
CALL FOR PARTICIPATION
Civic health data have become an increasingly central component of the national dialogue on civic life. NCoC produces the national civic health assessment, “Civic Life in America”, on an annual basis in partnership with the Corporation for National and Community Service. NCoC also partners with 25 communities nationwide to use this data to produce reports and initiatives that drive sustainable civic strategies. These civic health initiatives are based on a variety of civic indicators – including how often citizens report discussing politics, involvement in community groups, addressing local issues with neighbors, participation in volunteer and service activities, political action and other measures of social connection and community engagement.

May is Older Americans Month, a perfect opportunity to show our appreciation for the older adults in our communities. Since 1963, communities across the nation have come together to celebrate Older Americans Month—a proud tradition that shows our nation’s commitment to recognizing the contributions and achievements of older Americans.
