We The People Series

January 1, 2016 – December 31, 2017
Washington, DC

“In Order to form a more perfect Union,” We The People came together to form a government nearly 230 years ago—and, today, our government faces challenges the Founding Fathers could have never imagined. Through the vital power of rigorous debate and a collective spirit of Americans working for all, We The People can once again promote the general Welfare, and work to secure the Blessings of Liberty.

In a series of conversations, The Atlantic is exploring civitas, the contract binding all citizens together, and talking to leaders of business, politics and society who are striving to make our Union a little more perfect. Moderated by Atlantic journalists and underwritten by AFT, We The People is an ongoing series with leaders in government, policy and new ideas.
