Civics Credentialing Overview

The Civics Credentialing System (CCS)  strengthens our constitutional democracy by establishing a framework that incentivizes democracy-friendly behaviors on the part of citizens candidates, officeholders, and organizations.

Team Democracy

Team Democracy manages the Civics Credentialing System.  Team Democracy brings together Americans of all political perspectives around our shared commitment to the core principles of our constitutional democracy. Our focus is on countering the toxic polarization that has come to dominate political discourse in recent years. We promote and amplify positive messages and actions that underscore the importance of democratic institutions, norms and processes and our shared commitment to free, fair, and inclusive elections.

Team Democracy is a 501(c)3 non-profit
