Vision & values

We, the people is, exactly as the name suggests: about you, about all of us. There is no “them” in our vocabulary.

We are a movement which looks to empower you, as a citizen of India. At the heart of what we are is responsibility and being alive to ownership, hope, liberty, justice and equality. At the heart of what we do is deepening our understanding and relationship with the core values and processes outlined in our Constitution.

How do we, as individuals of a free, sovereign, democratic state, exercise our rights and responsibilities as citizens?

How do we stand in relation to the core values of liberty, equality, justice and fraternity enshrined in our constitution? What is our role in relation to the State?

We believe that citizenship is a journey, not a point of arrival. Most of us are citizens for as long as we live and just like our lives, citizenship is a work in progress, frustrating at times, yes, but also intensely exciting and engaging.

We seek to include all citizens on this journey; to create opportunities of action and reflection through our Citizenship Programme and other events. The aim is to enable each citizen to understand his/her role as a citizen and act out of power and responsibility and within his/her sphere of influence – however small or large that may be.

 

“We, the People” is a network of individuals and organisations committed to responsible citizenship with a mission to expand an informed, active and responsible citizenry in India

 

Our vision is, “to ignite a million sparks across the country by initiating exploration, understanding and action towards being an active and responsible citizen”.
