Learn about community issues and how you can get involved
Civic Boot Camps offer participants in-depth perspectives from local leaders on critical local issues and inspiration to take action in their communities. Civic Boot Camps address the historical and current context of local and regional issues such as racial justice, homelessness, climate change, economic equity, healthcare, immigration and civil rights. (In 2020, Civic Boot Camps moved online due to Covid-19 precautions).
“This is a critical time in our history,
and we can’t be passengers in our own democracy.”

Attending Civic Boot Camp was a great opportunity for me to make connections in our community. By meeting staff from Immanuel Lutheran Church, I was later able to partner with them for a volunteer project related to their homeless program.
-Nadia Gandara, Volunteer Initiatives Manager at United Way of King County
In the age of issues, sometimes it is really important to take a step back and understand the basics, and really try to personalize what the issues are, with Civic Boot Camp.
