The change of leadership in the United States – and the unsettling upheaval that took place at the Capitol – makes clear that to meet the challenges President Biden spoke of in his inaugural address, it will take a new generation of American activism and civic participation. It is up to us – all of us – to play our part and bring common purpose back to our country.

Next American Moonshot – a production of Polaris Media Lab’s American Lodestar initiative, is an unbiased, all-encompassing competition series and 360-degree campaign which gives rise to exceptional ideas that can reshape our communities to the benefit of all Americans.

It will extend across media platforms, including social media and second screen extensions, a full localized event strategy and grassroots empowerment curricula, generating extensive partnership opportunities.
