Ever have the feeling that you know something isn't right, but you just couldn't put your finger on it? So did our founder Robert Welch. But instead of enjoying retirement, he dedicated his remaining years to travel the world to study the problem and understand how to solve it.
Was he accurate in his assessment and effective in his solution? Let's answer that with an old adage from World War II pilots, "If you're not catching flak, you're not over the target." Opposition hit Robert Welch on all sides, but The John Birch Society prevailed. Today, we are more effective than ever.
To bring about less government, more responsibility, and -- with God's help -- a better world by providing leadership, education, and organized volunteer action in accordance with moral and constitutional principles.
That's The John Birch Society. Since 1958.
We are concerned Americans from many races, religious beliefs, and national origins. Since 1958 we have been men and women of good character, humane conscience, and religious ideals who have worked together to safeguard the Constitution. We believe in the foundation our forefathers built and are dedicated to restoring it. With strong leadership, we work at local, state, and federal levels to educate others on the proper role of government. We stand tall in protecting American independence for future generations.
A solution is only as good as your understanding of the problem. In his research, Robert Welch identified the foreign and domestic enemies that had organized and were waging war on the very foundation of America. His solution was to expose their globalist plans and work toward reining in an out-of-control federal government that these forces were using to satisfy their own agenda.
Sound familiar? It should. History only repeats itself because the same forces use the same strategies over and over again. Educating yourself and others on these strategies is key to understanding how we stop their anti-American agenda and preserve liberty for today and tomorrow.
Robert Welch organized volunteer leaders and assembled paid staff to create the most effective type of activist: boots-on-the-ground. Locally organized into small chapters, members employ the one strategy that has stood the test of time: education. They use only one weapon: truth. Members educate themselves, educate others, and create informed electorates all across this great nation.
Out of these informed electorates come candidates for elected office that obey the Constitution and follow its limitations. These elected officials carry their views, their influence, and their votes to every level of office they attain. From the local school board to Congress, they use all the constitutional tools at their disposal to pull government back within its constitutional limitations.
But the plan doesn’t stop there. Members hold these elected officials accountable by maintaining communication, continuing to help inform them on top issues and to help strengthen their voting adherence to the Constitution.
We invite you to either join, donate, or both! Work with others in your area on projects that advance our mission. Not sure what to do or how to get started? Our experienced Field Staff will contact you to go over options and get you involved.
Members benefit from daily, weekly, and monthly educational information from our national office as well as monthly local member action meetings.
Local chapters build awareness of issues and relationships with decision makers in their community through a variety of activities, from participating in local community events to holding video showings to hosting speaking engagements to neighborhood literature drops.
Activism is so much more than reading online articles and sending emails to Congress. You need to be out and active. If you're motivated to see less government, more responsibility and -- with God's help -- a better world, then it's time you joined The John Birch Society.
