Public Works is dedicated to building public will for the common good.
The public systems and structures that make up our local, state and federal governments are our instruments for pursuing the common good and accomplishing together what we cannot do alone. To secure and maintain the government we need and deserve requires more than marginal shifts in public opinion. We must create substantial and enduring changes in cultural understanding about the role and purpose of government. We must revitalize notions of civic responsibility, the value of public goods, and the virtues of a truly representative democracy.
With more than a decade of work behind us and engagements in more than 30 states we have laid a strong foundation for the tasks ahead. We have developed partnerships with key individuals and organizations across the country who share our belief that changing Americans’ relationship to their government and thus to each other is one of the central challenges we face in the coming decades. We are intensifying our leadership development work, broadening the reach of our training and support across the country, and fortifying our intellectual foundations. Following an ambitious, staged organizational development plan, we will solidify our position as the go-to resource on engaging Americans in building a public sector that works for our common good.
