Our mission is to assist our state Community Rights Networks to educate people across the country on local self-governance and community rights.
The National Community Rights Network (NCRN) has emerged from local and state community rights groups as a vehicle to support, network and help promote local, county and statewide community rights actions: ordinances, initiatives, charter amendments, and state constitutional amendments.
The NCRN has also drafted a Federal Amendment, Amendment XXVIII, protecting the right of local communities and states to adopt rights-based laws without being overturned by federal pre-emptive laws.
The NCRN became a 501c3 organization with the seating of a Board of Directors on October 18, 2014. At this retreat in Seven Springs, PA, two representatives from the following state Community Rights Networks (CRNs) joined the Board: Colorado, New Hampshire, New Mexico, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Oregon, and Washington.
We have concentrated on expanding and refining our communications, including interviewing activists for YouTube videos, updating and streamlining our endorsement application process, and working on our website to better share and promote the work of the state CRNs and local groups working on rights-based initiatives as well as to be a resource for the general public.
