Mission Statement

Promoting critical thinking, education, and informed citizenship by presenting controversial issues in a straightforward, nonpartisan primarily pro-con format.

Description

ProCon.org is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit public charity that has no government affiliations of any kind. Our purpose is educational. We do not express opinions on our research projects ("issue websites").

We accomplish our mission by researching issues that we feel are complicated and important and work to present them in a balanced, comprehensive, straightforward, and primarily pro-con format for free and without advertising on the internet.

  • over 1,000 questions on controversial issues with over 7,500 pro, con, and not clearly pro or con statements
  • date and source information for all research cited
  • Over 4,800 biographies for the sources used on the sites
  • been used by over 516 schools in 48 states and 14 countries
  • research done or vetted by experienced professionals
  • information for multiple age and reading levels
  • a Spanish version of our homepage
  • strict editorial guidelines to ensure journalistic integrity
  • been referenced by the mainstream media over 120 times (BBC, Forbes, NY Times, LA Times, etc.)
