50CAN’s Core Values:

Plussing It

Borrowing a phrase from Walt Disney, we challenge ourselves to do great work and then go a step beyond that… and then a step beyond that. We strive for “better” and “best” in our work.


We believe deeply in the American dream and our ability to foster real change in our states, even when faced with seemingly insurmountable odds. We approach tough challenges with high spirits.


We are dogged in pursuit of our mission and our goals. We don’t back down.


We are authentic about our challenges, mistakes and triumphs. We’re honest with others, and with ourselves.


We know we don’t have all the answers and that we can only succeed by constantly testing our assumptions, working in deep collaboration with others and grounding ourselves in diverse viewpoints from across our states. We learn from our successes and our failures and strive to constantly improve.
