The other day, a good friend was on their way into the grocery store when stopped by a woman holding her toddler and asking for cash. While the next election and impeachment hearings might seem like the most important issues, we at Americans of Conscience Checklist continue to focus on creating a better future for all our neighbors and unrigging systems that weaken our democracy.
Why? We’re morally opposed to the current administration efforts to hurt vulnerable communities and dismantle democratic norms. As we approach our fourth year of civil civic engagement, the AoCC team is committed to spreading light, sense, and solidarity.
We believe that democracy thrives when a mom in need of cash for groceries, a child at the southern border, or a teen in foster care have the same voice and value as an elected official. We’re not there yet.
2020 promises to be an intense year. As an antidote to the swirl of breaking news and polling reports, we offer clarity. Every issue includes good news from across the nation, thank-you notes to brave people, and short scripts to advocate with and for our neighbors.
We have exciting plans for 2020 at AoCC. In the new year, we hope you’ll commit to spending 30 minutes with our weekly checklist. Join us and the hundreds of thousands of Americans of conscience across our country who believe that a better future awaits.

Bravo for your dedication and hard work, your vision and your leadership. Indeed an inspiration.
You’re amazing, Jen – thank you for your courage and to your awesome team. There is an excerpt from a Lord Byron Tennyson poem that seems to sum up our collective strength: “Though much is taken, much abides; and though we are not now that strength which in old days moved earth and heaven, that which we are, we are; One equal temper of heroic hearts, made weak by time and fate but strong in will to strive, to seek, to find, and not to yield.” Onwards to 2020!
