Welcome to The Citizen’s Brief


Our mission

The Citizen's Brief is an independent Christian political newsletter that facilitates discussions on seeking the common good. Staffed by a talented crew of students, we strive for truthful and informed perspectives on political events through our online text publications and the Cross the Line podcast.

We believe that politics doesn’t have to be a hyper-partisan, fear-based exercise. Rather, we can engage fellow Americans on the issues with grace and truth, preserving our Christian witness while informing the culture with the objective truth of Scripture. We must think critically and Christianly about politics in order to bring glory to God and love our neighbors well.


Stay informed

You don’t have to worry about missing any new articles, newsletters, or discussions: every new edition of the newsletter and episode of the podcast goes directly to your email inbox.
