Our current focus is supporting public education systems that serve the needs of all students at pre-K through post-secondary levels.
We are committed to defending the protections guaranteed under the First Amendment to the United States Constitution, including resisting the establishment of religion and supporting the rights to free exercise of religion, to free speech, to a free and independent press, to peaceful assembly and to petition for redress of grievances. We will take nonviolent action in defense of such freedoms. We will strive to empower people to know and assert their constitutional rights. We will also work to educate about issues and propaganda strategies that threaten full and free expression or undermine the strength of a knowledgeable electorate.
