About the Coalition


DemocracyReady NY is a multigenerational, statewide, nonpartisan coalition committed to preparing all New York students for civic participation. 

The Coalition aims to

  • raise awareness about all students’ right under the New York State constitution to an education that prepares them for civic participation;
  • strengthen state policy, practice, and investment to help students develop the knowledge, skills, and dispositions they need to engage effectively in civic and political life, today and in the future‚Äč; and
  • mobilize the expertise of youth, parents, guardians, educators, researchers, advocates, attorneys, youth-development specialists, and philanthropy to work collectively toward these goals.

DemocracyReady NY is the New York state affiliate of the CivXNow national coalition, a program of iCivics.
