HOW IS OUR WORK UNIQUE?
EVERGREEN - Our stories stay relevant over time, and can be repurposed for educational use.
CIVICS-BASED - We view citizens not as consumers but as builders of relationships and communities.
HUMANITIES-ORIENTED - We think critically about language and meaning in a diverse democratic society.
NONPARTISAN, NO-BLAME - We assume that all citizens are ultimately responsible for our society as a whole.
NJ-FOCUSED - We showcase New Jersey while engaging in a national conversation.
