Our Mission

For Americans who want to understand and explain the value of our system of government and how, together, we can protect and improve the foundations of trust in our republic.

Our republic and its promises of accountability, freedom, justice, and equality under the law are at risk. Too many American adults neither understand nor trust how our system of government works. Instead of insisting on a free and fair competition of ideas, and instead of insisting on accountability, too many look the other way when their politicians bend or break the rules to win.  Scores for the quality of US democracy have slipped several times since 2011, and the corruption rating slipped in 2019, for the first time ever.

In response, we provide materials for civic education, ages 18 and up that are:


Today’s issues of trust and distrust in government and in political factions had strong parallels during the framers’ time. We show how the framers used the Constitution to manage their political distrust, how the system changed over time and why, and how those changes might affect our trust today.


We advocate only for free and fair political competition with winners accountable to voters. We do not advocate for political candidates or parties.


“Who, what, where, and when” are transformed from trivia to practical working knowledge with more emphasis on “why and how.”


Our team includes professionals who have participated in government or promoted democracy around the world. Our reviewers include civics experts, professors of U.S. history, constitutional law, political science and other applicable fields.
