Guide Updates

Everyday, news and events reflect the values (or non-values) discussed in our guides. One of the primary goals of our guides is to encourage our readers to embrace the task of looking at the news and deciding how contemporary events reflect our American values and the history of our country. From time to time, we will also include our own updates for our guides--recent news and a few study questions--that may lend to further discussion within your dialogue groups.

Please click on the guide topic below to find updates for that particular guide. (Note: If the guide is not click-able, no updates have yet been posted for that particular topic.)
