Virtual Civic Saturday: Rekindling Our Faith
We were honored to be asked to host the very first Civic Saturday, organized by Seattle writer and activist Eric Liu and Citizen University within a few days after the 2016 election. Since then we've helped support many of these gatherings, which are now held nationwide and have become virtual events. Eric Liu's book, Become America: Civic Sermons on Love, Responsibility, and Democracy (Sasquatch Books), a collection of "civic sermons" delivered at these gatherings around the nation, recently won the 2020 Washington State Book Award and serves both as a document of the intervening years and a source of inspiration.
