"Our differences are policies; our agreements, principles."

Our Principles Are What Unite Us

|

SAM’s principles guide our actions. We choose to focus on the common beliefs that make us more alike than on policies that divide us.

Those in power take every opportunity to divide us. SAM stands as a beacon for inclusion, providing a shared foundation on which to build a new political party for a new American majority. For those left behind by a political system that puts its interests ahead of those of the American people.

SAM was founded on 5 core pillars and 13 individual principles

Restore civic engagement, long-term thinking, and a culture of service to Nation and community

Commit to bold, pragmatic solutions that address income and opportunity inequality and reinvigorate our education system

Liberty

Defend Our Liberties

Champion diversity and protect people’s inalienable right to pursue their version of the American dream without question or interference

We can't do this alone

SAM is building a new political party for a new American majority. One where fairness, integrity, and common sense solutions work together to achieve real progress for Americans. 

Aside from a few members on staff on a day-to-day basis to keep SAM’s mission moving forward, we are entirely driven by passionate volunteers giving their time out of their own volition. 

We depend on people like you to keep our movement alive. Whether it be by becoming a member or a SAM Leader, or by monetary donation, any contribution along our path is hugely appreciated.
