The Pursuit of Happiness: An Inquiry into Our Nation's Founding Principles

A series of activities that explore the principles of "life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness" including a grant program, a radio and public television series, and a student poster/essay contest.

Codifying the values that would guide our nation in the “Declaration of Independence, ” Thomas Jefferson named “life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness” among the fundamental rights guaranteed to Americans.

RICH seeks $44,330 in “We the People” funds to support: a regrants initiative, a public forums radio series, a film series, and a public television series.
