Our Commitment

There is a general perception that many people preach but few practice when it comes to the performance of Civic Responsibility. However, at least a few like-minded people should concentrate efforts to practice and preach in a way that expresses full commitment to their convictions. Furthermore, we should all pledge together that we will try our best to become model citizens and loyal residents of this blessed land, the United States of America. Learn More...

Our Objectives

AACR will organize educational programs, including workshops, seminars and conferences, on personal civic responsibility at local, state, and national levels for youth leaders across the United States. Learn More...
