Americans are “alarmingly uninformed” about the USA’s history, founding principles and economy, our legal system, and government functions, — knowledge needed to participate wisely in civic life, from a commissioned report.
Our main mission is to inform the public about the “core” systems we all must deal with in America. Such as, our Legal System, Governmental Services, Housing and Environmental Issues, Employment and Housing Laws, the Food industry and FDA regulations, and other important areas.
Once informed we intend to educate in more detail so that the magnitude of the situation is fully understood and engaged.
By creating an innovative platform with very engaging features.
How we do this is by offering each person a personalized digital folder to keep all the categories and topics that matter at their fingertips in one organized place. As you engage in the process of being informed and educated, there will be real world tangible rewards that will impact your life in many ways. And it’s all free and open to all!
