Civic Literacy and Engagement: Home


In the state of Wyoming, civic engagement and civic literacy are particularly important due to the state's unique characteristics and challenges. Wyoming is known for its small population and vast geographic area, which can make individual voices even more influential. By actively participating in the democratic legislative processes, citizens can help shape policies that address Wyoming's communities' specific needs and priorities. 

Paying attention to legislation, understanding its impacts, and engaging in civic participation and literacy are fundamental for informed decision-making, public welfare, advocacy, and preserving democracy in Wyoming.

Throughout this guide, you will find several ways to follow and engage with democracy on a local, state and federal level. There is information on voter registration, best practices for contacting officials, how to follow legislative updates, ways to connect with local organizations and ways to research civic engagement utilizing Libraries resources.
