Rule Number One:
There are no dumb questions.

The world is a complicated place. Don’t you wish you understood it better?

Civic Series helps you understand — and think for yourself about — the most important issues of our time, like Brexit, the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, climate change, and many others. We run free, non-partisan events where you can ask questions of experts and discuss the most important issues of the day.

Civic Series events are educational but we’re not academics or activists. Our expert speakers present multiple sides of the issue without telling you what to think. We have no agenda, other than to inform you about the world you live in.

Civic Series is a non-profit project run by a group of dedicated volunteers in the United States and Canada.

By helping people understand the world around them — and their place in it –, we help create a stronger, more informed democracy, and more engaged citizens of the world.

– Founder, Laur Hesse Fisher
