Active Citizenry USA (ACUSA) is a bipartisan, nationwide, organization dedicated to protecting our nation's rights by making it a priority for our elected leaders in congress and local districts. As a legislative watchdog, ACUSA works in concert with advocacy groups to identify and highlight important bills impacting our civil liberties and our health. ACUSA also supports pro civil liberty candidates for political office at election time and holds legislators accountable for their votes in an annual Scorecard.
HOW WE GOT STARTED
Active Citizenry USA was launched at the height of a growing problem in the United States. Special interest groups have taken over state legislatures throughout the country in order to push their respective agendas while the citizens affected by the policies pushed by these groups are becoming voiceless. Civic action and responsibility are no longer a focus in education and students are graduating from high school and college never once learning how to engage in the political process that has the power to govern their lives and restrict their freedoms if left unchecked. The only solution to this growing problem is to create and empower an Active Citizenry.
