America 2049 (#America2049) is an alternate reality game on Facebook (http://www.america2049.com) that presents a near-future America at a crossroads: civil liberties are in peril, and democracy is on the brink of destruction. You, the player, are an Agent of the Council on American Heritage, tasked with the capture of a presumed fugitive—and confronted with high-risk situations that challenge you to ask: What if?
How close are we already to America 2049, and how can we work together, in real life, to build a better future? This is a game. But in real life, you have to work together to make sure that we work together now, to make build a better future.
Agent, here’s your task: Support Breakthrough, a global human rights organization behind America 2049, and many other initiatives that use the power of media, pop culture, and community mobilization to inspire people to take bold action for dignity, equality, and justice.
Thank you, Agent. We are counting on you to help get the U.S. back on track.
We look forward to working together.
