As we increasingly confront complex problems let’s use our founding ideals and empower citizen action to build an enduring national governing consensus that we’ll need to thrive in the 21st Century.
Citizen action, specifically the ways that people living in America can help add their voices and actions to accelerate sustainable prosperity, is an essential part of our podcast conversation. Because of our ideals and our need to tap into all of our citizens’ talents and abilities, let’s talk about the best ways each of us, working together, can make a productive impact.
