Theory of Change

The Calendar 

Our citizen oriented strategic plan is a roadmap for the journey to reclaim the role of the citizen within the political ecosystem.

It builds on the understanding of the first principles that were articulated in the Declaration of Independence and informed by the  current challenges confronting the body politic.

The Citizenism Project  contains a number of interconnected  elements: initiatives, programs, and areas of focus that will be made public over the next few years.  


We build on four pillars that will be introduced during the next five years: 

We The People @ 250

What Would James Madison Do? WWJMD 

Americanism and Our Civic Ritual of Freedom

Health and wellbeing

Pillar #3: Americanism and Our Civic Ritual of Freedom

George Washington’s Farewell Address

The Civic Seder Ritual for Thanksgiving

Americanization Day

Constitution Day:  A Time to Reflect


The State of the Union

We invite anyone who shares our vision and mission to take part in our work, suggest topics, pose questions, write posts, and most importantly, contribute to the conversation.
