SAM was founded by citizens, for citizens.

One of SAM's core goals is to inspire and enable citizens to become leaders within their communities

For too long, voices on the far right and far left have dominated the political conversation in the United States. 

Too many Americans have lost their voice in the politics and policy making that impacts their daily lives, creating a feeling of helplessness and hopelessness.

It is enormously impactful for community members like you to take action, organize and have a say in politics and political campaigns. Only then will our government begin representing our interests.

Pennington, New Jersey

“My brother introduced me to SAM and I was totally inspired.  All of SAM’s guiding principles resonated with me, and the plan to build a third party seemed substantial and achievable; not just like naïve idealism.  I knew we needed change and joining SAM felt like a reasonable and meaningful way to take action. I wanted to help SAM in any way I could! ” 

“SAM needs group leaders to build a viable third party alternative, so here I am. Being a SAM leader is a way for me to contribute in a small way to affect change on a much larger scale. I like to think I may have a little hand in changing our nation’s history for the better.  And, SAM provides the tools to run a circle; the format is self-directed; and I can host circles when it works for me time-wise.  There really wasn’t any reason for me, personally, not to become a SAM leader.”

SAM is building a new political party for a new majority. Our goal is to break the self-interested stranglehold of the two entrenched parties and give back power and voice over our future, and our country, to the people.

We can’t do it without you.
