What We Stand For

  • We firmly believe all people are created equal and “all” means without exclusion, everyone.
  • We believe Americans have the right to a safe and secure life, the freedom to follow their aspirations, and the privilege to pursue happiness.
  • We believe the purpose of government includes maintaining a strong defense to protect life, preserving and expanding liberties, and empowering us in our pursuit of happiness.
  • We believe education creates a progressive nation, a tolerant social order and must be an equal right to all.
  • We believe diplomacy and respect to all nations are the groundwork for strong allies and promotes human rights across the world.

Ways We Unite

  • When essentials of every day life for hard working Americans become unattainable, we seek solutions. Affordable food, health care and housing are a few examples.
  • When Americans are born into disadvantaged conditions, we insure they too have a fighting chance to pursue the American dream. This is a land of opportunity for everyone.
  • When courageous people break their silence seeking justice, we join them as one voice for change. Times Up for those who violate others in any way.
  • When minorities are ostracized and their rights infringed, we pursue justice together as one majority. Prejudiced profiling is unacceptable.
  • When people around the world are escaping oppressive governments and leave their homes in fear, we along with our allies provide sanctuary and work to elminate the injustices. We are a nation of immigrants with empathy to their plight, and we adhere to Lady Liberty’s motto.
