JAMES MADISON’S MONTPELIER inspires continuing public engagement with American constitutional self-government by bringing to life the home and contributions of James and Dolley Madison. James Madison, Father of the Constitution, Architect of the Bill of Rights, and U.S. president, shared his lifelong home, Montpelier, with his beloved wife, Dolley, whose political and social flair inspired the title “First Lady.” The 2,650-acre plantation in Orange, Virginia, includes the historic home, galleries, gardens, archaeology, forest trails, and views of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Montpelier is a National Trust Historic Site administered by The Montpelier Foundation. Visit montpelier.org. Find us on Twitter @JMMontpelier.
THE ROBERT H. SMITH CENTER FOR THE CONSTITUTION at James Madison’s Montpelier seeks to enable the public to expand its knowledge and understanding of the Constitution. Through nonpartisan online and on-site programs, the Center inspires participation in civic dialogue, improves the public’s understanding of U.S. founding principles, and enables citizens to deepen their understanding of and participation in our constitutional self-government. To date the Center has served teachers from all 50 states, judges, state legislators, police officers, members of the media, and dignitaries from more than 90 countries. Visit montpelier.org/center.

The MILLENNIAL ACTION PROJECT (MAP) is a national, nonpartisan organization activating a new generation of Millennial policymakers to revitalize our democracy through cooperative political leadership. Since 2013, MAP has organized the nation’s first and only caucus for young members of Congress, the Congressional Future Caucus, which forges pragmatic and innovative solutions on Millennial issues. MAP has also expanded this model into many states across the country. This growing movement of young, high-potential legislators and mayors actively participate in local Future Caucuses, the James Madison Fellowship, and other MAP programming.
