Columbus Bar Foundation to Host 2nd Annual Civics Education Event for Local High School Teachers and Students

Contact: Casey Oleen (casey@cbalaw.org)

On March 30, 2023, the Columbus Bar Foundation will host "Democracy Matters," 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 journalist Eugene Robinson of the Washington Post and MSNBC will be the main speaker with remarks from NBC4 anchor and attorney, Colleen Marshall. 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.

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.
