In the United States, patriotism is aligned with values that further social and racial justice.
Patriots Believe aligns liberal values with patriotism to inspire, amplify, and multiply the voices of Americans who are committed to fighting for social and racial justice across the country.
Since 2016 the idea of patriotism has been coopted by right wing America. As a result, liberal and progressive Americans feel disillusioned with the state of the nation, have lost pride in their country, and experience fatigue in fighting for their beliefs.
If we change the current narrative around what it means to be a patriot for liberal and progressive Americans they will once again regain hope in fighting for their country. This hope will re-energize them as they fight for social and racial justice in their communities and throughout the nation. We believe that by connecting like minded individuals and reclaiming what it means to be a patriot, collectively liberal and progressive Americans will be successful in midterm and presidential elections and creating a more just America.
