Our Mission

Our mission is to work towards a government of, for, and by the people — 240+ years and it’s still a work in progress.

We believe:
…in our youth, so we create educational tools to engage and inspire our future leaders. 

We believe:
…that real change begins close to home, so we also provide tools for adults who need a refresher course in rights, rules, and tools.

We believe:
… that inalienable rights belong to real (human) people and that money is not speech, so we develop teaching tools for system change.

Tools + Rules = Game Changers!
