As a Michigan, voluntary, right-of-free-association organization, the mission of the Traverse Bay Area 9.12 Project is to EDUCATE, ENLIGHTEN, and ENERGIZE.
Through our website and meetings we educate. From there, an educated member experiences enlightenment through thoughtful discussion with others in our group. The natural result of education and enlightenment is to become energized to action in a myriad of ways, each of which is appropriate to a particular member.
"I know no safe depository of the ultimate powers of society but the people themselves, and if we think them not enlightened enough to exercise their control with a wholesome discretion, the remedy is not to take it from them, but to inform their discretion by education." — Thomas Jefferson
We support the Nine Principles and Twelve Values embodied by Glenn Beck in the 9.12 Project. We expect that members support at least seven of the nine.
