Testimonials about the CCA

Representatives' Comments About the CCA

"The Committee for Citizen Awareness does excellent work. Every chance I get, I participate because I see them as a bridge between our government, its leaders, and the people of the United States of America. Because they connect us, and the stories from here, and the history that we all enjoy, with young people as they are in the formative years, paying attention to the proud heritage of the leadership of our country and its extraordinary government that our Founding Fathers have given us. So, I think the Committee for Citizen Awareness is an outstanding organization, doing work on behalf of education and knowledge for future generations."
- Zach Wamp (TN-3)

"Thank you so much for your part in distributing the educational videotape "We the People... the U.S. Constitution and You..." Increasing participation and enhancing knowledge of our democratic system is important. I believe this videotape goes a long way towards meeting this goal."
- Dennis Moore (KS-3)

"I appreciate the good work of the Committee for Citizen Awareness. I think the educational videotapes helping our young people in our communities understand their responsibilities... understanding how Congress works, how our executive branch, our judiciary, how our constitution works... those are all important parts of our nation. I appreciate their good works. I strongly support their efforts. I encourage you to enjoy and support this group."

"I look forward to the circulation in my district of the educational videotape, "Where We Stand" which has been so positively received elsewhere in the country. I am glad that we had the opportunity to participate in this project together. The cause of enhancing the awareness of our citizens about the many unique privileges we Americans have in the health field and elsewhere is an important one to address... Thanks again for all of your efforts regarding this videotape."
