We are thrilled to share that the Civics Education Act (SB 513) was passed unanimously out of the Oregon House of Representatives yesterday and is now on its way to Governor Kate Brown for her signature.
This is an amazing win for the future of civics education in Oregon. We consistently heard from lawmakers that they were “overwhelmed” by the amount of community support for the Civics Education Act that they were hearing and this legislation owes its success to the hundreds of educators, students, elected officials, business leaders and community members who made their voice heard.
We are so grateful to everyone who helped to ensure that every Oregon high school student will have an opportunity to experience dedicated civics instruction before graduation. Thank you!
