Our National Platforms represent the portfolio of America250 programs and provide unifying themes to America250 partners around the world.
An initial 14 platforms demonstrate our shared goals and establish a blueprint for the most inclusive commemoration in American history.
Each National Platform makes room for commemorative and celebratory expressions, while including opportunities to reflect upon our first 250 years and inspire Americans to imagine our next 250 years. They include dozens of programs led by America250, and many more led by our partners. America250-led engagement initiatives will provide frequent and accessible means for participants to take part in each platform and its programs.
As we continue to involve partners at home and internationally, we plan to expand this list of National Platforms to reflect the growing interest and activity leading up to 2026.
