A Firm Foundation For The Future
There is much on the Internet to be avoided, but if one knows where to look, there is much also of great value. Al Gray Civic Institute provides fact-based, verifiable content about American political and constitutional history, American political order, ethics, the arts of thinking and conversation. At the Institute, students are able to explore ideas about our founding and development as a country using original documents such as declarations, constitutions, speeches, letters, essays, books and more.
Understanding how to think, not what to think, citizens become ever better equipped to engage in civic conversation, which is the heart and soul of civic friendship and self-government. We invite you to engage our courses on thinking and civic participation, beginning wherever you are, and at whatever pace is comfortable for you. We Americans have much of importance to discuss. Let us be about it!
