We the People: The Citizen and the Constitution Program promotes civic competence and responsibility among the nation's upper elementary and secondary students. The We the People printed textbook's and enhanced eBook's interactive strategies, relevant content, and the simulated congressional hearing make teaching and learning exciting for both students and teachers. The program enjoys active support from state bar associations and foundations, and other educational, professional, business, and community organizations across the nation. Since its inception in 1987, more than 28 million students and 75,000 educators have participated in the We the People Program.
The Center for Civic Education partners with a network of 50 state civics, government, and law programs sponsored by state bar associations and foundations, colleges and universities, and other civic and law non-profit organizations to promote teaching and learning about the Constitution and Bill of Rights. These state programs conduct local teacher professional development, hold conferences, and organize local and state simulated congressional hearings for elementary and secondary students. Each year, these state programs impact thousands of teachers and tens of thousands of students.
