About Us

Mission: The Constitution Leadership Initiative is a non-partisan organization devoted to promoting a better understanding of the U.S. Constitution among the American people. We will pursue our mission through a series of initiatives:

Initiative 1: Conduct public seminars, symposia and debates on constitutional issues.

Initiative 2: Develop a network of advocates at state and local level who will keep a discussion of constitutional issues in the public view, through Letters to the Editor, newspaper and magazine articles, and other media.

Initiative 3: Encourage the formation of “Constitution Clubs” in high schools, colleges, churches and communities around the USA. Provide courseware to these clubs to teach the design of the Constitution as composed by the Founders and ratified by the States, and which demonstrates how this original design has changed through amendment and Supreme Court decision since the document was ratified in 1788.
