About Us

Our Mission

We seek to increase constitutional engagement at all levels, from the individual citizen to the highest office of government.

We believe that everyone should be made aware of the fundamental rights granted to them by the Constitution and civil rights laws. View our Know Your Rights handouts to learn what your rights are, how to access them and what to do when they are violated.

Ever wonder what Due Process actually means? Or why judicial delay remains such a pressing issue? Join us as we discuss these questions and more in “The Assembly”, a podcast that explores a wide range of constitutional issues and their impacts on daily life.

Looking to understand how the Constitution of India shapes the Indian government? Our Constitution 101 page will teach you everything you need to know!
