Student Ambassador, Constituting America
The statistics about Americans’ understanding of our country’s founding and fundamental principles are concerning. The latest Annenberg Civic Knowledge Survey showed that only 39% were able to name the three branches of government, while 22% couldn’t even name one branch. A 2019 Gallup poll showed that four in 10 Americans embrace some form of socialism. In this conversation, we’ll talk with author and actress Janine Turner about our country’s challenges and opportunities, and why she co-founded Constituting America, an organization whose mission is to educate Americans about the Constitution and the rights and liberties it provides and protects for all of us.
