The New York City Bar Association is working to do its part to help boost civic education among the public to encourage greater participate in the democratic process.

The legal organization is launching a “Civic Education Task Force” aimed at helping the public better understand how their government works for them on every level, and the importance of voting toward enduring that federal, state and local governments are fair, just and working for the people they represent.

“Knowledge is essential to constructive civic engagement,” said City Bar President Susan J. Kohlmann. “Government of the people can only function if the people understand how their government works and how to participate in it.”
