Building Better Informed Americans

Building Blocks for Liberty


Building Blocks for Liberty is an Ohio registered non-profit educational organization dedicated to the preservation of the U.S. Constitution by teaching others the importance of this historical document that governs our nation.


Our Constitution Boot Camps equip people with the tools and resources necessary to enable them to be confident in their abilities to understand and apply the US Constitution to all facets of government.


Constitution Boot Camp:

Boot Camp is a six-hour workshop that outlines the key concepts and ideas of the Constitution in simple, easy-to-understand terms. It is appropriate for teenage students and older.

Some of the topics covered include:

How did the Founders view government?

What are Natural Law / Natural Rights?

What is the difference between a Republic and a Democracy?

How do you use the Federalist Papers to understand the US Constitution?

What is Nullification?

And much more!

Bootcamp participants receive a binder with the presentation, 2 handbooks, The Federalist Papers and The Handbook For We the People, plus a pocket copy of the U.S. Constitution.


Senior Citizens, Home School Students, Teachers, Law Enforcement officials, Government officials and anyone who just wants a refresher on the Constitution!

Constitution Boot Camp can be tailored to specific groups, time constraints, and ages.

Building Blocks for Liberty is the brainchild of Marines Jim Lewis and John Hindery.

In the United States Marine Corp, Jim and John spent four years defending the United States and the Constitution they took an oath to uphold and protect. As American citizens, they became increasingly alarmed as they watched in astonishment the endless attacks on the liberties of Americans by an overreaching government. Determined to stop the daily barrage of misinformation, the two men decided to combine their love of history with a desire to educate the public the truth about the Constitution, and developed the unique teaching partnership now known as Building Blocks for Liberty.

The first Constitution class began in 2011 as a 10 week course and met once-a-week. Due to the time commitment required, many who wanted to attend could not. However, people were able to attend a more compact, one-day version of this popular course, so, in 2013; the first "Boot Camp" was born.

In July of 2014, Building Blocks for Liberty (BBFL) was incorporated to be an organizational umbrella. Its mission is to educate people about the truth of the Constitution

To date, BBFL has taught over 30 Constitution Boot Camps in southern Ohio, including Columbus, Xenia and Dayton, SE Indiana and Northern Kentucky. Using materials provided by BBFL, this class is now being taught as far away as Texas.

BBFL’s goal is to start an online class to reach an even broader audience, allowing easy access to the presentation where individuals can study it one module at a time and complete the class at their own pace. BBFL is currently working to make this study available on DVDs
