New Resource: The Constitution EXPLAINED

In celebration of Constitution Day, iCivics and the Center for Civic Education proudly launched an exciting new resource led by iCivics’ Senior Director of Partnerships and Constitutional Scholar in Residence Julie Silverbrook in collaboration with Constitutional scholar and author Linda R. Monk and Christopher R. Riano, the President of the Center for Civic Education. Funded by Kenneth C. Griffin, The Constitution EXPLAINED is an engaging new video series exploring the U.S. Constitution and reflecting on the rights and responsibilities enshrined in this seminal document. The 35 short videos dig deep into every article and amendment in straightforward and easily digestible 2–4-minute segments that provide both context and modern relevance. While the videos are geared toward middle and high school students, they can also be used by the general population as an engaging refresher. Plans for these videos include integrating them into future exhibits and other learning experiences.  Explore the Videos

Toolkit: Vote for the Planet Campaign

Why Vote For The Planet?

When we vote for the planet, we are voting for elected officials who shape the climate and sustainability policies of our schools, communities and businesses. Each vote is a vote for climate justice that protects future generations and those most vulnerable to the impacts of climate change. Voters agree that in order to see systemic change locally and globally, climate justice must be addressed. In the United States:

  • Communities of color are disproportionately affected by environmental hazards. People of color are more likely to die of environmental causes, and make up more than half of the population living near hazardous waste.
  • Historically discriminatory housing, education, employment, and healthcare policies have all increased the inequalities that place communities of color at higher risk of dangerous climate impacts.
