We the People State Programs
The Center for Civic Education partners with a network of 50 state civics, government, and law programs sponsored by
state bar associations and foundations, colleges and universities, and other civic and law non-profit organizations to
promote teaching and learning about the Constitution and Bill of Rights. These state programs conduct local teacher professional development, hold conferences and organize local and state simulated congressional hearings for
elementary and secondary students. Each year these state programs impact thousands of teachers and tens of thousands
of students. If you would like to know more about your state program click here
We the People is a section of the White House website,
launched September 22, 2011, for petitioning the current administration’s policy experts. Petitions that meet a certain threshold of signatures are most of the time reviewed by officials in the Administration and official responses are be issued, but not always, as outlined in the Criticism section. Criminal justice proceedings in the United States are not subject to White House website petitions. In fact, no real processes of the federal government are subject to these White House website petitions; they are a public relations device for the present administration which permits citizens to express themselves.

“Everybody is organized with the exception of the people”;
We The People: We need to renew our greatness as a nation by going back to our roots and to the first principles contained in our Constitution and The Declaration of Independence. One Nation under God, indivisible, and with Justice for all!
As George Washington once said:
“Is anybody there?
Does anybody care?”
