A new way to look at civic education.

We know there is a lot of frustration with government, and lots of angry voices, but we firmly believe fixing the system is better than throwing it out. Our republic needs your help.

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 will provide materials for civic education focusing on how our trust in our system of government is shaped by the incentives and institutions within it.
We will look at the gaps between “what is” and “what should be” and explore options to start closing those gaps.
