Coalition of nonprofit groups using hashtag #OurAmerica

ARLINGTON HEIGHTS, IL – Today a coalition announced a month-long campaign in July to celebrate American exceptionalism.

#OurAmerica is a nationwide movement to bring our country together to emphasize what makes America fundamentally good and what distinguishes it from other nations.

The goal of this new coalition is to re-energize and provide hope for mainstream Americans who are demoralized by the erosion of American liberty and the constant assault on our core principles. The #OurAmerica Coalition affirms natural rights as anchored in the Declaration of Independence: America was founded as a free and independent nation that recognizes the inalienable rights of individuals to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.

The Heartland Institute joins the Center for Security Policy, Center for Urban Renewal and Education (CURE), The Millennial Solution, National Association of Scholars, and Turning Point USA as the first members of this new and growing coalition representing millions of Americans.

Individuals and organizations can join the campaign by visiting heartland.org/ouramerica. Those interested can use the hashtag #OurAmerica to send quotes, pictures, songs, blog posts, and speeches and share their thoughts on why America is exceptional.

NOTE: Additional coalition partners, ambassadors, events, and campaign developments will be announced July 10.
