Who is Liberty Nation GenZ?

Liberty Nation GenZ is an educational website for young Americans that seeks to give the next generation accurate and unbiased information on issues of the day. Our mission is to report and analyze public policy, politics, and trending topics in an age-appropriate format, utilizing the founding documents as our guide.

Our website is designed for students and teachers to read, participate in, and download. Our open-source content is available for use without fear of copyright or republishing infringement. Liberty Nation GenZ is set up for easy access to information so that teachable moments swiftly become opportunities to stimulate intelligent student/teacher/parent discussion and civil discourse.

We believe it’s never too early to introduce ideas and concepts about our world in a format that young people can comprehend easily. Thus, we provide three levels of participation: Liberty Explorers is geared toward the elementary school reader; Liberty Discoverers speaks to a middle school level; and Liberty Patriots is expressly designed for the high school/college student.

We encourage thinking skills that foster – not stifle — compelling dialogue with young readers. We desire to promote a respectful conversation that lets freedom ring without the loonies and haters.

In this age of information, very few places permit disparate voices and points of view. That’s why Liberty Nation GenZ analyzes current events without the filters of a PC culture that subjugates independent thought to a political agenda.

Liberty Nation GenZ writers are young, fresh, and captivating.

GenZ is led by Editor-in-Chief Leesa K. Donner, who homeschooled for ten years. As well, Editor-at-Large, James Fite, along with his wife, Heather, are current homeschoolers. As such, we have designed LNGenZ.com to be user-friendly to the homeschooler.

We believe the best learning can and does occur in fun and free environments. Soon we will be offering student readers opportunities to participate in interactive games and writing contests.  For the educator, we are in the process of creating downloadable classroom worksheets designed to develop a student’s critical thinking skills.

LNGenZ.com is a project of One Generation Away, a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization.  And we are true to the OneGen mission: to apply America’s founding principles to the issues of today. We do not endorse political candidates or specific legislation. Liberty Nation GenZ  reports on and offers analysis on current events and all things related to American public policy and topics under discussion in the public square.

We believe the next generation of Americans deserves an opportunity to learn in an uncensored, open, and safe educational environment – free of name-calling, bullying, and obscene gestures.  We do not seek to hegemonize, tyrannize, or oppress individual thought, as is often the case in more and more educational settings.

We invite you to read our website, download its content often, submit articles for publication, and pass the word that there now exists a place for students and teachers and homeschoolers to call home.

Below are listed the principals of Liberty Nation GenZ. We love to hear from students. If you’d like to submit an article for consideration, please visit our Submission page.
