We interview the people of America who value democracy under the rule of law of our Constitution and embrace the idea of governing with independent-minded wisdom and compassion. Whether you are interested in civics in action, how technology/Internet relate to Civics, how the humanities and civics intersect, or want to promote organizations and ideas around civics education, civic-engagement, or pro-democracy reform, we’re interested in interviewing you or your team.
If you are one of the thousands of people in communities across America who are involved in bridge-building and pro-democracy work, please let us know by using the form below. One of our Core Team members (below) will out reach to discuss your organization’s mission & ways we can help to amplify it on social media and our Compassionate “Revolution” YouTube channel.
