Informed Civic Engagement Resource Guide: Informed Civic Engagement

“Don’t let your inability to do everything undermine your determination to do something for the cause of your country.” - Cory Booker


The UWB/CC Campus Library believes that supporting informed civic engagement is a critical part of our educational mission. The purpose of this resource guide is to assist in learning more about engaging in the democratic process. It includes tools for voting and interacting with elected officials, engaging in challenging conversations about key issues in our communities, and understanding fake news and disinformation.


This guide was updated in June 2020 in the wake of national and global protests over institutional systems of oppression, racism, and bias. The Civic Action page will help you to learn about, engage with, and take action in electoral politics. Voting in all elections is important. But specifically, voting in local elections has direct, tangible impacts on day-to-day life. Voting may seem insignificant in the greater context of national and world events, but it is a fundamental and powerful action.

Follow the links on the left side of this page to engage with the compiled resources.
