Rhode Island’s Civic Health
Where are we and how can we move forward, together?
Civic health reflects the strength and resiliency of our communities. It includes the many ways that individuals—the “me”—connect with community, society, and government—the “we.”
Civic health relates to how people participate in their communities, from local and state governance to interactions with friends, family, and neighbors. It is also influenced by the overall well-being of neighborhoods, communities, states, and the nation.
Join us to learn more about the 2022 Rhode Island Civic Health Index, focused on community well-being and community participation. How can Rhode Island funders and nonprofits, as foundational partners in “civil society” use this data to inform our own work and further strengthen our communities?
The 2022 Rhode Island Civic Health Index is a project of the Rhode Island Council for the Humanities with funding support from the “A More Perfect Union” initiative of the National Endowment for the Humanities and the Rhode Island Foundation. The Index has been produced in partnership with National Conference on Citizenship and the Rhode Island Department of State, as well as advisors and Community Partners.
For funders and nonprofits.
