What is the civic empowerment gap?
While the entire country faces a civic education deficit, the problem is heightened in low-income communities. Often valuable civic education and empowerment opportunities are unequally distributed, leaving the most marginalized youth the least prepared to participate. Disparities in civic knowledge, civic disposition, civic motivation and civic skills between low-income, minority youth and wealthier white youth have been termed the “civic empowerment gap.”
