“The animated videos debuting here today will help young Americans understand how our government works and the importance of our democratic liberties… Each of us has the duty to be informed, engaged citizens, so today I ask you to join us in this important work. The future of our country depends on it.”—Laura Bush, Former First Lady of the United States

Our goal is for these videos to be played in classrooms and homes across the nation in order to help address the enormous gaps in civic literacy today."—Shari Redstone, Chairman, Paramount
