Civic Courage Journaling Project Gathering



Date & Time

September 23, 2022, 12:15 pm1:45 pm


Join the September Civic Courage Project gathering. This month's prompt is: What is one of the most important lessons you've learned through experience?

The Civic Courage Journaling Project creates opportunities for individual reflection and group conversations about personal experiences that have important, often hidden civic dimensions. Civic Courage encompasses the ability to take risks, work through tension, be patient in the face of challenges, stay open and engaged, take responsibility for the foreseeable consequences of one’s actions, face changes bravely, and act in accordance with one’s core values and beliefs.
UMBC student, faculty, staff, and alumni journal bearers (see below for how to become one) respond to prompts from the Center for Democracy and Civic Life by creating entries in their journals. Journal bearers share their reflections during conversations at monthly gatherings.
We hope to see you at this month’s gathering of participants in the Civic Courage Journaling Project. We will email the prompt to journal bearers and also post it here a few days before the gathering.
If you’d like to be involved with the Civic Courage Journaling Project, send us an email: civiclife@umbc.edu. The Center for Democracy and Civic Life will provide you with a journal.
