iCivics is an “equity centered” and “educator focused” curriculum provider for civics education at the K-12 level founded by Justice Sandra Day O’Connor in 2009. [1] The group provides free civic education themed online games and teaching presentations designed for elementary and middle school students. iCivics executive director Louise Dubé said in an interview that iCivics “made a commitment to pointing out institutional systemic racism” because doing so is “the moral imperative of today.” iCivics has reportedly received substantial funding from the left-leaning Silicon Valley Community Foundation. [2]

The organization has also launched the CivXNow project, a coalition of organizations that advocate for state and federal legislation to “reimagine and deliver relevant, inclusive, and engaging K-12 civic learning, both in- and out- of school.” CivXNow has published a federal policy agenda which expresses support for the Educating for American Democracy Roadmap (HR8295) and the Educating for Democracy Act of 2020. The organization has also authored a white paper on “Equity in Civic Education.” [3]

As of July 2021, the CivXNow webpage stated that the project was funded by the Robert R. McCormick Foundation, the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation, and the Carnegie Corporation of New York. [4]
