Constitution Day 2022: The California Conference on Citizenship

Davenport Institute

Location: In Person

24255 Pacific Coast Highway
Malibu, CA, 90263

The California Conference on Citizenship will bring together leaders from around the state to assess civic health and explore civic innovations that can improve the quality of life for all Californians.

The conference will highlight successful examples of public engagement and civic innovation, strengthen connections between people working to improve local democracy, and inspire planning for stronger civic infrastructure in the state. The event will also generate discussion on the civic health research needed in California, and explore ways to understand how the pandemic, partisan polarization, and other factors have affected how Californians are connecting and working together.

The conference will begin with a keynote presentation by Josh Fryday, California’s Chief Service Officer, followed by a plenary panel exploring the research on civic health. A number of concurrent sessions will be held in the afternoon, followed by a reception.
