The Crisis Confronting America

America’s current crisis is not simply a crisis of fact and information. It is a crisis of understanding and devotion. For too long, young people been taught to hate their country.

For the American experiment in self-government to endure, our children and grandchildren must come to understand—and to love—America’s founding principles. Yet, we, as a nation, are failing.

The Ashbrook Solution

Ashbrook introduces young people to the real story of America—good and bad—through primary documents and serious conversation.

These young people come to see America’s history as a struggle to live up to the promise of freedom. They come to understand and love their country, and become willing to defend the principles that make it great.
