2020 Virtual PCSS Conference Theme

“Expanding Citizen Voices”

In 2020, we commemorate the expansion of voting rights in our nation’s history – the 150th anniversary of the 15th Amendment (prohibiting disenfranchisement based on race, creed, or previous servitude), the 100th anniversary of the 19th Amendment (women’s suffrage), and the 49th anniversary of the 26th Amendment (votes for 18 year olds). Each is more than a moment in history, but a chain of events to investigate and understand – protest movements, court cases, legislation, and more – that inform issues today. Preparing young citizens to learn how to exercise their voices in our democracy is a cornerstone of social studies education, whether that preparation takes place online during a pandemic or in a more traditional classroom setting.
