"I am convinced that teaching the disadvantaged and underserved their legal rights and responsibilities will help them become more productive workers and more engaged citizens which will benefit not only their families, but help build stronger communities."
-- Amanda DuBois
We empower people by teaching them their basic legal rights and responsibilities with easy-to-understand legal education tools. Our goal is for everyone to have access to the information they need to realize the promises of our Declaration of Independence: life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.
What We Do
Civil Survival creates legal educational materials and develops educational programs and training for government agencies, non-profits, and local outreach programs. Our content and programs are designed to assist with re-entry and life skills issues faced by a variety of disconnected and underserved populations. Civil Survival is designed to help at-risk individuals assimilate into their communities so that they can lead productive lives. Civil Survival includes a book series and an e-learning program that is written specifically for a low literacy population so that readers can easily understand the concepts presented.
