Let’s go inside government and plan your political campaign inspired by historical examples from the Dole Institute and Archives. Learn more about our national government and write a letter to your local, state, or federal representatives based on examples written by kids just like you! What does an active citizen mean to you and your community? Discuss the three branches of government and create a list of what laws affect you and how they impact your daily life. Please join us for both sessions of this two-part program.
