Columbus Bar Foundation to Host Civics Education Event for Local High School Teachers and Students

Contact: Donna Sweet (

On March 10, 2022, the Columbus Bar Foundation will host "Preserving Our Democracy," a special civics education event for local high school government and history teachers and two of their students.

This event will include a sit-down dinner and parking, free of charge. Pulitzer Prize-winning author Jon Meacham will be the main speaker, with additional remarks by Ohio Supreme Court Chief Justice Maureen O’Connor and the Chief Judge Algenon Marbley of the United States District Court. In addition, students and teachers will have the rare opportunity to meet face-to-face with local state and federal judges and other prominent leaders over dinner.

We are confident this will be a meaningful and memorable event. Judges and the entire legal community believe it imperative to support good civics education and diminish the rancor evident in too many current discussions about America and its future.

Teachers: RSVP by Feb. 10

This event is not political. It is intended to recognize and encourage strong teaching and to inspire students to learn about civics and history in these times when too many discussions become polarized.
