Due to incredibly high demand, in-person registrations will now be placed on a waitlist. Virtual participation is still available. 

Join award-winning journalist Soledad O’Brien in conversation with Congressman Maxwell Frost (FL-10), the only Gen Z member of Congress. The program will focus on the roles young people can play in civic life and how citizens can engage with the political system, from advocating to get a pothole fixed to voting to running for Congress. The program’s welcome remarks will be made by Archivist of the United States Colleen Shogan.

Opening remarks will be provided by National Archives Foundation Chair and President Governor James J. Blanchard. 

This program is hosted in partnership by the National Archives and National Archives Foundation as part of Civic Season, an annual tradition that encourages young people to actively participate in our democracy and engage with public history institutions between Juneteenth and July 4th.
