United by the promise to abolish slavery, the Republican Party was founded in Jackson, MI, in 1854, and has been the party of freedom, prosperity, and opportunity for the American people. The Republican Party has led the nation in advancing civil rights, beginning with President Lincoln— who abolished slavery and ultimately gave his life for freedom.
Republicans went on to lead the charge in Congress to give women the right to vote in 1919, and to pass the landmark Civil Rights Bill of 1964. Today, Republicans stand against the discrimination and civil rights violations imposed by CRT (Critical Race Theory) and DEI initiatives of the progressive left.
We love America. We are focused on bringing her people together in celebration of our nation, our history, and our future. We believe in protecting God-given and constitutional freedoms, including the freedom to make personal choices, to think independently, and to speak without fear.
We advocate for strong families, education excellence, and honest compassion. We believe in ensuring the integrity of elections, and maintaining our national security. We foster principled, innovative leadership which stimulates economic growth, giving every American the opportunity to succeed through personal responsibility and rugged individualism.
Our legacy compels us to defend America's values. As the progressive left attempts to destroy what has made America exceptional, the Republican Party defends America and our way of life for our children and grandchildren.
We are the party of the everyday American— the worker, the parent, the small business owner, and the entrepreneur. We operate through the lens of reality and facts. We are placing the people back in charge of their government and restoring the American Dream for every citizen.
Join us as we bring a fresh wave of Republican leadership up and down this great state.
