Join us for a week of exciting and educational events showcasing the artists, designers, musicians, filmmakers, authors, fashion and beauty changemakers who are lighting up our screens and airwaves to shift our consciousness and conversations for good.
At the Center for Free, Fair, and Accountable Democracy (CFFAD), we help Americans understand and explain why democracy is precious and how, together, we can protect and improve the foundations of trust in our republic.
Our work is made possible thanks to the support of volunteers who develop educational content and marketing materials, and help with fundraising efforts.

We are all about civic education for ages 18 and up. We help people understand (1) what it takes for a democracy to work well, and (2) how to live it, protect it, and improve it.
Our primary mission is to provide civic education to adults ages 18 and up. To that end, we have already published many short courses that hundreds of people have already accessed. A specially tailored version of one of our course appears on the Ballotpedia website. We will continue building our audience and expanding our materials.
