Civics Forward 2020

Last year, the U.S. Chamber Foundation made a commitment to educate the business community about the importance of civic knowledge and civil dialogue to our nation.
 
We believe that informed and active citizens make for a strong country, a strong economy, and a strong workforce, and that our continued prosperity depends on the strength of all three.
 
As voters head to the polls, there are many questions about the election and how it’s all going to work, especially during a pandemic.
