1.5 Million Americans Visit Site and Reaffirm Their Commitment to the Nation

In the two weeks since the launch of the Born Again American initiative at the Inauguration kick-off event in DC, over 1.5 million Americans have committed to get involved in their communities and serve the country by visiting www.bornagainamerican.org. The Born Again American campaign includes a specially commissioned song and interactive website offering visitors the opportunity to reaffirm their belief in American values that hark back to the Declaration of Independence.

The Born Again American campaign asks citizens to pledge themselves to be “their country’s keeper” through higher levels of service and civic engagement. At www.bornagainamerican.org, visitors can pledge their active citizenship, volunteer for service, register to vote, share their thoughts with their public officials, listen to and write their own lyrics to the song and otherwise work together to renew the American promise. The “Born Again American” song features regular Americans performing in front of fourteen iconic landmarks, from the Statue of Liberty to the Golden Gate Bridge.

In a matter of days, Americans from the left, right, and center have come forward and declared themselves Born Again. Over 1.5 million have visited the site; 60,000 people have signed the pledge to reconfirm their active citizenship; thousands have volunteered for service in their communities; thousands more have used the widget on the site to communicate with their elected officials; and thousands more have watched the Born Again American music video and contributed lyrics and personal pledges to the cause.

Norman Lear, producer, philanthropist, and founder of Declare Yourself, the organization behind Born Again American said, “The overwhelmingly positive response to this campaign from Americans of all different political and religious affiliations has been incredible. It’s a true testament to the fact that the values we share as Americans are greater than the differences between us as individuals. We have one million people who feel the spirit to be Born Again Americans and we hope that millions more will be moved to join this movement as it grows.”

Born Again American is committed to the rebirth and re-expression of citizenship through informed and thoughtful activism. It is an initiative of Declare Yourself, a national non-partisan, non-profit (501c.3) organization dedicated to increasing young voter participation and civic involvement.
