Citizen University National Conference is a civic gathering unlike any other in America. Join hundreds of change-makers, activists, and catalysts to learn about power, deepen your networks, and recharge your sense of purpose.

With luminary speakers, master teachers, and lessons on civic power, the conversation will be rich and provocative. This is a time when citizens are solving problems in new ways, bypassing broken institutions, stale ideologies, and polarized politics. We are part of a movement to rekindle citizenship and remake the narrative of America.

Our theme for our 2017 conference is: RECKONING AND REPAIR. We face deep divisions across the country. Now more than ever we the people have to step up: to reckon with injustice across ideological divides and to repair our frayed social fabric. Join us. 

Speakers include Alice Waters, Annette Gordon-Reed, Bob Woodson, Berto Aguayo, Brad Jenkins, Brittany Packnett, Carrie Mae Weems, Felicia Wong, Heather McGhee, Jim Wallis, Jose Antonio Vargas, Krista Tippett, Matthew Dowd, Maria Hinojosa, Matt Kibbe, Rajiv Chandrasekaran, Rinku Sen, Ruben Navarrette, and Titus Kaphar. 

Begins Friday, March 24 at 5:30pm - Ends Saturday, March 25 at 6pm, Seattle.
