iCivics: Our Founder, Justice Sandra Day O’Connor

As the nation mourns the passing of Justice Sandra Day O’Connor, the first woman to serve as a U.S. Supreme Court Justice, we remember her not only for her seminal work with the Court, but also as the founder of a movement to revitalize civic education. We at iCivics are honored and humbled to carry Justice O’Connor’s commitment to and passion for civic education forward into the future.

Justice O’Connor grew concerned about a growing lack of understanding about our system of government and the disengagement that inevitably follows. Justice O’Connor founded iCivics in 2009 with the goal of transforming civic education through innovative, engaging games and resources.
