 Mission:  To promote public awareness and education of the Constitution of the United States of America. 

Purpose: To develop educational and legal actions to help ensure our political, civil and military leaders have a working knowledge of the Constitution and are upholding their oath to “preserve and protect the Constitution of the United States of America”. 

HOW ARE WE ORGANIZED

We are organized and operate as a Cooperative under the National Cooperative Business Association www.ncba.coop recognizing and promoting the proposition that the United States of America is a cooperative meant to be of benefit to all the people not 1% or 2%. of the population. 

WHAT IS A COOPERATIVE?

Cooperatives around the world generally operate according to the same core principles and values, adopted by the International Co-operative Alliance in 1995. Cooperatives trace the roots of these principles to the first modern cooperative founded in Rochdale, England in 1844.

1. Voluntary and Open Membership Cooperatives are voluntary organizations, open to all people able to use its services and willing to accept the responsibilities of membership, without gender, social, racial, political or religious discrimination.

2. Democratic Member Control Cooperatives are democratic organizations controlled by their members—those who buy the goods or use the services of the cooperative—who actively participate in setting policies and making decisions.

3. Members' Economic Participation Members contribute equally to, and democratically control, the capital of the cooperative. This benefits members in proportion to the business they conduct with the cooperative rather than on the capital invested.

4. Autonomy and Independence Cooperatives are autonomous, self-help organizations controlled by their members. If the co-op enters into agreements with other organizations or raises capital from external sources, it is done so based on terms that ensure democratic control by the members and maintains the cooperative’s autonomy.

5. Education, Training and Information Cooperatives provide education and training for members, elected representatives, managers and employees so they can contribute effectively to the development of their cooperative. Members also inform the general public about the nature and benefits of cooperatives.

6. Cooperation among Cooperatives Cooperatives serve their members most effectively and strengthen the cooperative movement by working together through local, national, regional and international structures.

7. Concern for Community While focusing on member needs, cooperatives work for the sustainable development of communities through policies and programs accepted by the members.

WHO

Any person in america, regardless of their citizenship status or age, may join and participate in the discussion and actions and benefits of the CRCA. The one exception for non-citizens is petition campaigns requiring citizenship signitures.

WHERE

Utah, Maine, Missouri, Maryland, Washington DC, Virginia, New Hampshire and soon to be all 50 States

WHEN 

We organized in 2008 

WHY

Our idea was to create a model and action of America that we hope as membership grows will reflect a "Constitutional Republic" that is not about money but "We the People and most importantly, Our Children, The next Generation. Presently maybe 1% of the population has a working knowledge of the Constitution, our rule book. A National Constitutional Literacy is required for us to function fairly and legally, which is our goal.

We hope you will join and lend your voice and action to the challenge of restoring our country to "We the People"  

Sincerely,

Joseph K. LaBonte

President and CEO
