About Us

This EAD work is being done under the Governor’s Emergency Education Relief (GEER) grant in partnership with The Center for Political Thought and Leadership and Arizona Civic Education Leaders. Our goal is to offer new ways to learn and educate others by talking about civics and developing a framework in Arizona that has the potential to spread across the nation.

Even More About Us
