Engaging Florida's Citizens

People are disengaged from their governments. A well-functioning democratic republic requires a well-informed and highly engaged electorate. Complicated processes and intricate operations procedures erect barriers to understanding how government policies affect their every day lives. Communities need local individuals that can speak with authority and knowledge to those elected or appointed to make decisions on their behalf.

Uninformed citizens lead to disengaged citizens.
Disengaged citizens lead to bad government.
The cycle has to stop.

The Vision

To truly hold government accountable, citizens must understand the process of governance, be informed about most important issues, and be prepared to present their views in such a way that their voices will be heard and respected. The Center for Florida Citizenship (CFC) will arm Floridians with these necessary tools.

The Mission

The mission of the Center is to enable Florida voters to fulfill their responsibility as citizens by educating them on the activities, functions, and processes of their government, informing them on key issues through fact-based, non-partisan research, and preparing them to participate.
