To: All House members
Subject: Civic Education Awareness Month – September 2017
The government “of the People, by the People, for the People”, needs their participation. Unfortunately, as we can all recognize, many people don’t understand their own governments, how they operate or which level or branch of government handles what task.

Therefore in the near future, I will introduce a resolution designating the month of September, 2017 as “Civic Education Awareness Month” in Pennsylvania.

The purpose of this resolution is to bring attention to the importance of civics educated citizens to create and also understand the rights, duties and responsibilities that accompany the title. It is vital for Pennsylvania’s students to learn about what it means to be a citizen in order to effectively take ownership of their government.

Please join me in sponsoring this resolution to designate Civic Education Awareness Month.
