Who We Are: We are a political action committee, comprised entirely of volunteer staff, combating the increased risk of the United States sliding towards autocracy under the Trump administration. We believe the ingredients necessary for autocracy to flourish are now present in American politics, including:
- Corruption & Conflicts of Interest
- Erosion of Constitutional Liberties
- Foreign Interference
- Discrimination & Demonization of Vulnerable Communities
We aim to be inclusive and seek to provide quick and effective ways for individual citizens to resist and make a difference during the Trump presidency.
What We Do: Each weekday we post a quick and easy call to action (usually a call to your members of Congress) along with all the information necessary to take the action (such as scripts and phone numbers). We encourage best practices for civic activism and utilize social media to spread them.
Our Approach: Our government was deliberately designed to allow individuals to have their voices heard via a representative legislative body. It is now time to take the Founders up on that proposition and make our voices heard. No matter who you voted for in the 2016 presidential election, all loyal Americans can agree that a free Constitutional Republic as described in the U.S. Constitution and Bill of Rights is preferable to an autocratic kleptocracy.
Inspired by Indivisible (written by former congressional staffers who saw first-hand how the Tea Party succeeded), The Loyal Opposition aims to empower a new era of civic involvement easily accessible to all. There is power in numbers and together we will preserve our great Republic and Constitutional liberties for generations to come.
The Loyal Opposition is a participant in and strategic partner of the Action Alliance, a federation of more than fifty #resistance sites located throughout the nation, each with its own methods and approach. Other member sites are listed here; page down and click through and you’ll find many more opportunities to make a difference. You can also find a number of these sites listed on our Resources page.
