Helping to educate, motivate and empower Americans to

expand skills, entrepreneurship, prosperity and freedom

About the Center for America

We produce non-partisan video, audio and website programs to educate, motivate and empower ordinary Americans to recognize the crucial tipping points facing America and to invest their time and talent in solving our country's challenges.  We need to find new ways to have substantive public dialog that fosters collaboration, not confrontation and political paralysis, in dealing with our nation's issues. The Center for America is a 501(c)(3) organization founded in 2004. 

Thomas Jefferson said, “I know of no safe depository of the ultimate powers of the society but the people themselves; and if we think them not enlightened enough to exercise their control with a wholesome discretion, the remedy is not to take it from them but to inform their discretion by education.”

We take this admonition seriously.  It energizes our commitment to bring forward leaders from the front lines of business, government and community life whose experiences and ideas can open new avenues of progress for America.

Rebuilding America’s prosperity in the global marketplace of the 21st century requires us to change our culture of polarization and to refocus on the fundamental values that have characterized the American experience. One of these is Free Enterprise, the genesis of our prosperity and the only sustainable source of new jobs and innovation. We need to find ways to reduce barriers to entrepreneurship, including excessive liability, lawsuit abuse and over-regulation.

We hope you will harvest value from our work and look for opportunities to partner with us.  There is a lot to be achieved and not a moment to lose!
