Working Assumptions is proud to partner with Citizen Film on American Creed: Citizen Power, a documentary initiative exploring American idealism and community leadership from a range of young adult perspectives. A selection of cast members are using our wrkxfmly assignment to tell visual stories about how they care for friends, families, home, communities, the land, and democracy itself.
