Civic Sunday @ CHM | Take a Stand Together
Sunday, June 25
Presented in partnership with Made By Us, Civic Season is one way we roll out the welcome mat for the future inheritors of the United States, unleashing access to history for informed, inspired civic participation. Anchored by our newest and oldest federal holidays, the Civic Season event series mobilizes a movement to understand our past and shape our future.
This session focuses on the civic superpower Defend.
Defenders keep the movement moving and stand up for what they believe in, like the 250,000 students who boycotted the Chicago Public Schools in 1963 to protest racial segregation. Take part in a Civics in Chicago group mural and the Sharing Civic Love activity, then tour the Museum with the Displayed: Civic Action @ CHM guide. Round out your visit a screening of the film ’63 Boycott (2017).
All Civic Season events are FREE admission days for Illinois residents.
