America’s Founding Fathers laid the foundation for citizen participation. They knew this beautiful experiment in democracy would only exist over generations if each citizen realized the importance of getting involved and taking action. Across this country, Americans are stepping up and speaking out in their local communities to serve and give back to this country that has given all of us so much.
