If you care about our republic

We have two goals: (1) help Americans understand why democracy is precious; and (2) help them understand, protect, and improve the foundations of trust in our republic.

We provide materials for your civic education, focusing on how our trust in our system of government is shaped by the incentives and institutions within it.

Our learning modules are a great way to build your knowledge and they are short, easy reads. Try them on your own, or invite your book club to discuss each one!
