Please join the Utah Division of State History as we engage with our past, take informed action in the present, and work together to shape the future during Utah’s 2022 Civic Season. Throughout June and July, State History will highlight nine historic days that honor our nation’s rich and complex history:

  • June 2nd – Indian Citizenship Act
  • June 12th – Loving Day
  • June 14th – Flag Day
  • June 19th – Juneteenth
  • July 1st – 26th Amendment 
  • July 2nd – Civil Rights Act of 1964
  • July 4th – Independence Day
  • July 24th – Pioneer Day
  • July 26th – Americans with Disabilities Act

We will be sharing resources and activities on Utah’s past and present through our social media channels. Look for #UtahCivicSeason and #CivicSeason to follow us on the journey.
