Democracy: It's Up to Us! - Come Get Your Civics On! How California State Government Works
Democracy: It's Up to Us!
Come Get Your Civics On!
How California State Government Works-
And Why You Should Care
By David McCuan, PhD
Professor of Political Science, Sonoma State University
On Zoom, Tuesday, February 6, 2024 at 6 pm PST
Free but Registration Required.
Do you know what Democracy is? It's us! If we don't know what's going on, if we don't know how our government works, then we forfeit our political power to other people -- who may or may not share our interests. Democracy is only as strong and healthy as our awareness and involvement in it. Government is a good example that if we are not AT the table, then our interests will be ON the table.
Our state government is just as important as what happens in Washington, DC. How much do you know about it? Do you know what our California state government does? Who our state representatives are? Welcome to an easy and fun way to learn about why our state government is important in our lives.
Dr. David McCuan is a professor of Political Science at Sonoma State University. He has worked with many national main stream print, radio and tv stations nationally and around the world. In the area of elections, Dr. McCuan focuses on the general impact of ballot measures-direct-democracy in the state of California and across the nation.
