Civics and civility are important for a thriving democracy because they allow citizens to participate effectively in the political process and to resolve their differences peacefully. When citizens are informed about their rights and responsibilities and when they are able to engage in civil discourse, they are better able to hold their government accountable and to work together to solve common problems.
