WEST PALM BEACH, Fla., Nov. 19, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- StarGroup International has embarked on a national citizenship campaign that aims to rekindle the American spirit.
The campaign will kick off in 2015 to remind citizens of their rights and responsibilities for the freedoms that we all enjoy. It will instill a message of hope in our deeply divided nation facing the upcoming election season.
"America is more than political standoffs," said StarGroup International President Brenda Star, whose goal is to encourage Americans to be good neighbors and responsible citizens. The campaign will use the award-winning book Citizenship: What Every American Needs To Know, published by StarGroup International.
"We know that our country is at a critical crossroads," Star said. "As a Baby Boomer who grew up with a sense of integrity, strength and pride for our country, I have become more and more aware of a different perception in today's world. A large segment of our population cannot pass a basic civics test."
Citizenship: What Every American Needs To Know is not a political book. It's one filled with facts, history and information about a great nation. It's a compact, easy-to-read, concise, informative book about America, its history, its government and how it works. Former Florida Bar President Scott Gardner Hawkins wrote the following: "Through Citizenship, we see that the values which have distinguished the United States, such as liberty, equal justice for all and the rule of law, are compelling and enduring."
Secretaries of state from Connecticut, Kansas and Wyoming have given their endorsements, as well. The former executive director of the National Conference on Citizenship, David Smith, said the book succeeds in "eloquently urging every American to partake in a more active citizenry."
StarGroup International's patriotic partners include stakeholders who share the campaign's vision. They will take part in national distribution.
Citizenship: What Every American Needs To Know received a top honor in the 2014 Next Generation Indie Book Awards' education category. The largest nonprofit recognition program for independently published books, the Indies are referred to as the "Sundance" of the publishing world and are judged by leaders in both traditional and independent publishing industries to help identify books that deserve wider audiences.
StarGroup International is encouraging participation from dedicated citizens in the areas of business, education and government to join in the effort. For information, call Brenda Star at 561-547-0667, Email or visit stargroupinternational.com.
