Grand Rapids, MI (PRWEB) April 30, 2008
ACT! For America, a non-profit grassroots Citizen action network dedicated to promoting America's national security and democratic values against the assault of Islam fascism, announced today the launch of its Chapter. This organization is forming in response to the growing political correctness and Militant Islam's intimidation going on in our country.
"We must unite our voices and demand that our elected officials put the safety, security and freedom of the citizens of the United States above concerns for political correctness or the rights of those who want to harm us or radically alter our way of life," says ACT! For America Founder and President Brigitte Gabriel.
The vision of the Grand Rapids, MI chapter is to: Promote and implement educational programs that teach and enable citizens participation in the defense of America on the community, city, state, and national level. Respond to anti-American and anti-Israel media bias and "politically correct" apologists for militant Islam in the media, academia and politics. Hold our elected officials accountable for defending and protecting the United States and its only democratic ally in the Middle East, the State of Israel. Promote public policies and legislation that defend America and democratic values against the terror and tyranny of Islamofascism. Partner with like-minded organizations to coordinate effective public relations campaigns to speak against media bias and religious bigotry wherever it exists.
"Although the Grand Rapids, MI area isn't overrun with militant Islamists, this area is not immune to radical Islamic intimidation. Our chapter seeks to educate local citizens about the war that has been declared on America from jihadists, and equip them with peaceful, constructive tools to bring about a positive change in local policy and public opinion," says ACT! For America Chapter Leader, Mark Lee.
