The EpiCentre and GenerationNation are helping us put on a community event where you and yours will have the opportunity to learn more about civic education and the upcoming convention.

Please bring a school supply with you to the event – a complete list of items needed is below. We will collect all the items and donate them to a local school and to a local youth organization offering summer programs.

The Charlotte in 2012 Convention Host Committee sincerely appreciates the assistance of our partners at the EpiCentre and GenerationNation in carrying out our legacy of youth civic education. You can visit GenerationNation at for more information on how to get your children involved in civics education and leadership.
