GET INFORMED

An informed electorate is vital to America. Today, it's harder than ever to sift through information to find what's important. Couple this with the overall tendency to argue about issues about which we often don’t know the basics.

THE ABC's

Rather than starting with our ABC’s and 123’s we often skip over these and jump to discuss the advanced and complex ideas about a topic in which we become quickly entrenched. Inform Your Community gets back to the basics of important issues. Our 4C curriculum provides information that gets you the need-to-know foundational knowledge that no one ever taught you and that you haven’t had a chance to research yourself related to civics, civic engagement, civility, and civil rights.
Because every person is a stakeholder invested in a variety of issues, Inform Your Community lays the foundation of a broad range of cluster areas topics.
  • Foreign Affairs and Trade
  • Underserved Populations
  • Government and Election Reforms
  • Security and Defense
  • Health
  • Civility, Ethics, and Values
  • Education, Research, and Technology  
  • Business and the Economy
  • Environmental Protection
  • Crime, Law, and the Judicial System
  • Federal Budget and the Tax System 
  • Social Safety Net

When you are confronted with unfamiliar information about important issues like those mentioned here, be sure to check your facts. Take some time to check all the rumors you hear about a topic before jumping to conclusions. With so much information being circulated though word of mouth, social media, legitimate news sources, and not legitimate news sources, there is a lot to sort through. 

If you are not sure if something is accurate or if something sounds just a bit too extreme, too good, or too bad to be true, always check whether what you are hearing, reading, or seeing is based in credible evidence. Check out these tools to help.
