UNITED STATES Constitution

The Constitution of the United States is the supreme law of the United States of America. The first three Articles of the Constitution establish the rules and separate powers of the three branches of the federal government: a legislature, the bicameral Congress; an executive branch led by the President; and a federal judiciary headed by the Supreme Court.

The 3 Corners of Change
DIRECT SERVICE
EDUCATION / ADVOCACY
ORGANIZING / POLICYMAKING
Direct service is about hands-on involvement. Direct service can be one-time only projects, an on-going commitment, working with a group, working alone, working in a set location or moving from place to place. The Goal is to meet people’s immediate needs, such as food, shelter, clothing, or medical care. Direct service encompasses anything from sitting with the elderly in a nursing home to complicated technical work. The possibilities are endless.
Education / Advocacy is about a sustained campaign with messaging that communicates a call for change. Advocacy campaigns are used to change people's minds, whether they be decisionmakers or ordinary people. Education / Advocacy raises awareness for a particular change and can be carried out over a long period of time.
Organizing Policy making focuses on making a long-term change by changing policies which govern citizen actions. Organizing and policymaking is the approach we emphasize because it:
builds power within the community by mobilizing others
lets you come up with the best solution for yourself/your community and
seeks long-term solutions to the problem (creates lasting change by addressing the root causes).
