The Basics: Citizenship
Being a civic hero starts with being a member of a community, also known as a citizen. You may be a citizen of a family, school, town, state, and country! As a member of each of these communities, you have rights and privileges. For example, citizens of the United States have rights and privileges provided to them by the U.S. Constitution and the laws passed by the U.S. Congress.
