Knowledge for Everyone

Civics education should be connected to real life and real people.

We believe that information about our government, democracy, and political system should be transparent, clear, readily accessible and free. On this page, you will find a variety of resources that explain the basics of these systems. You may download and use them for school projects, classroom lesson plans, or whatever else you imagine!
