Ever since its founding in 1958 by Robert Welch, The John Birch Society has been dedicated to restoring and preserving freedom under the United States Constitution.
As Robert Welch himself explained, members of The John Birch Society come from all walks of life and are active throughout the 50 states on local, regional and national levels.
United by a strong belief in personal freedom and limited government, plus a sense of duty, members of The John Birch Society have educated millions of Americans on the appropriate role of government. Using educational and concerted action tools of a wide variety — including local lobbying, distribution of literature, email campaigns, news conferences, petitions, and more — members have played a continuous, pivotal role in halting legislation and federal policies that threaten the independence of our country and our people.
For more than 50 years, the Society has educated and informed its members and others, who have worked together to bring about major changes in national policy. Direction of our volunteer leaders — and our paid field staff — in pursuing the action agenda campaigns of The John Birch Society is provided from our headquarters based in Appleton, Wisconsin.
A national network of local chapters initiates communications projects and implements the programs outlined in the monthly JBS Bulletin, the member newsletter. Activity at the local and regional levels is guided by professional Field Coordinators who provide the benefit of their knowledge and experience.
