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. Each year, our innovative, timely, practical and fun programs involve and inspire over 400 teachers and 24,000 students from  250 schools in 75 Oregon communities.


This Thanksgiving, we want to thank all of the students, teachers, volunteers, alumni and friends who make Classroom Law Project Possible.

Please take a moment to watch a video of thanks from a few of the more than 26,000 students who are learning to be active citizens, thanks to you!

Happy Thanksgiving from the CLP Team.
