Take the Civic Pledge

The Citizens Campaign developed the Civic Pledge to provide a powerful opportunity for individuals to join with their fellow citizens to promote a politics based on seeking pragmatic solutions to our communities, state and nation’s challenges. Based upon a pledge made by citizens of Athens when they reached maturity, it represents a core value of democracy--a commitment to put the community’s best interests first.

star THE PLEDGE star

"I pledge to leave my community better than I found it by pursuing pragmatic solutions instead of just pointing out problems and assigning blame."


The pledge to pursue pragmatic solutions gains power from its guiding principles.

Solutions must be:

  1. Evidence-Based
  2. Cost-Effective
  3. Advanced with a No-Blame Approach

Implemented, they will bring about the desired result.
