  • There are thousands of issue advocacy groups and think tanks in Washington…But no Citizen-driven movement, across the country, building a voice against the extremes on both sides of the aisle…We are Republicans, Democrats and Independents, who care deeply about issues and fostering bi-partisanship in the halls of Congress…We want our politics to evolve and for Americans to put country over party…We are No Labels.
