Democracy, civics and active participation in the community are not things with which we are born — they must be learned.

Which is why Classroom Law Project brings vital and engaging civics and law-related education programs into Oregon schools, teaching students at all grade levels the values and skills essential to being a participating citizen in our democracy.
