The We the People Congress is a non-profit,
membership-based assembly of patriotic Americans dedicated to
“institutionalizing” citizen vigilance and governmental accountability.
The organization is legally and institutionally separate from the We The
People Foundation, but closely connected by a mutuality of purpose and
coordinated operations plans.
The Mission of the
We The People Congress is threefold:

achieving its goals of restoring Freedom and Constitutional Order
through the exercise of popular sovereignty by all possible non-violent
means including: public protest, judicial process, legislative lobbying,
electoral advocacy and the exercise of the Right to Petition.
America stands at a crossroad. In our lifetime, we may witness either
the demise or resurrection of our Constitution, our Republic and the

the Light of Liberty
for the People of this nation, and the world.
