Mission

Teach Americans the importance of being involved in     our democracy and how to be effective citizens.

A response to President Kennedy’s plea in his 1961     inaugural address:

"Ask not what your country can do for you -
ask what you can do for your country."


Beliefs

Effective citizens do simple, yet powerful, things - citizen     actions - on a daily basis that keep the country free.
