Our Mission

Mission

The mission of the Lucy Burns Institute is to empower our audience to engage in democracy by delivering exceptionally high quality information.

Principles

  • The truth is not partisan.
  • People seek truth and use it in positive, powerful, and unforeseen ways.
  • Informed voters are the foundation of democracy. Positive change starts with them.
  • Democratic self-governance is not the work of a day; it requires optimism, persistence, and the long view.
  • The online environment is an extraordinary opportunity to reach voters with comprehensive facts, information, and context.
