Because Democracy Matters

The Chiesman Center for Democracy is a non-profit, non-partisan organization that promotes and supports civic education, community engagement and organizational/leadership development.  Through our programs, we encourage citizens of all ages to be active participants in the very fabric of their communities. 


“Since we have implemented the Character Counts pillars into our curriculum, we have seen a huge attitudinal shift in the kids; both in how they regard each other and the teachers.”
