Allen West Foundation “To Inspire and engage the Next Generation of guardians” Join Allen West today

ABOUT THE FOUNDATION

The primary objective of the Allen West Foundation is to educate and inspire the next generation of conservative leaders among the minority and veteran communities.

ABOUT ALLEN WEST

Allen West first took an oath to support and defend our Constitution as a young Second Lieutenant in the United States Army. During his 22 years of service, he was distinguished by numerous commendations and honors for valor, achieving the rank of Lt. Colonel.

In 2010, Colonel West once again reaffirmed that oath when he became the first black Republican from Florida to serve in the United States House of Representatives since Reconstruction.

The Foundation bearing his name was established to encourage others to follow a similar path of commitment to our nation and its constitutional principles.

Allen West “Today, as we wish our Jewish friends a happy Passover, lets also reflect on the freedoms so many have fought to preserve in our own nation”

banner

Dear Friends:

Sundown tonight marks the beginning of Passover and the Seder.

While we all come from different faiths and backgrounds, each of us can learn much from this Jewish holiday commemorating the struggle of the Jewish people over 3,000 years ago, their emancipation from slavery in Egypt, receipt of the Torah at Mt. Sinai, and establishment of their homeland in the Promised Land.

The eight day feast of Passover is a time when Jewish people reflect upon the story of their ancestors and retell it, parent to child, to ensure the love of liberty is passed on from generation to generation.

The Jewish people’s liberation from tyranny is not so different than ours as Americans. Our Founding Fathers fought the British monarchy so that we could enjoy the fruits of our labors and the liberties they believed were inherent to all human beings. But today, too many of us have lost sight of this and our freedoms seem not to be cherished as they should. This is abundantly evident in our political system that seeks to take away the very liberties enshrined in the Constitution-the right to bear arms, freedom of religion, freedom of speech, and more.

So today, as we wish our Jewish friends a happy Passover, let us also reflect on the freedoms so many have fought to preserve in our own nation, and ensure the love of liberty is passed on to our future generations.

The Allen West Guardian Fund was established as a PAC to support conservative military veteran and minority Republicans running for state and federal office, in the same vein as Allen West.

Allen West first took an oath to support and defend our Constitution as a young Second Lieutenant in the United States Army. During his 22 years of service, he was distinguished by numerous commendations and honors for valor, achieving the rank of Lt. Colonel.

In 2010, Colonel West once again reaffirmed that oath when he became the first black Republican from Florida to serve
in the United House Representatives since Reconstruction.

Forty years ago, 72% of House lawmakers and 78% of those in the Senate had served in the armed forces. Veteran representation on Capitol Hill has been steadily declining since the early 1970s, largely a result of the World War II generation steadily leaving public office. But those who have served in the military have a better understanding and a deeper comprehension of issues involving national security, armed services and veteran issues –issues no less important now than they were 40 years ago.

Colonel West was one of only four black Republicans to serve in the United States House of Representatives in nearly a century. In the Senate, there have been only two. As the demographics of the U.S. population shift, it becomes ever more critical to increase representation by not only black, but Hispanic and Asian American leaders as well.

The leadership PAC Colonel West established during the 2012 election cycle with the same mission helped 7 military veteran candidates win their seats in the House of Representatives.

We must ensure conservative leaders are elected who will stand as guardians of our constitutional republic, to restore our nation’s fiscal responsibility and strong national defense, limit the growth of government, unleash the free market and preserve the liberty and sovereignty of its citizens.

The American Spectator: Allen West: In Search of Giants

pol_west49__01__360x240

By 

Former Rep. Allen West has no plans to run for reelection — but he wants to help conservative minorities and military veterans win seats in Congress.

“I asked myself, ‘How can I help the next generation of minority conservatives?’” West told TASin an interview. “I could go back and try to get back into Congress. But it’s not about ‘I.’ there’s no ‘I’ in team.…If you’re going to do what’s right by ‘Team America’, it means getting constitutional conservatives, getting people that can make a difference — especially when the other side is saying this is just the party of old white guys.”

West’s Guardian Fund politial action committee aims to raise $5 million to help 12 conservative candidates running in 2014 — specifically, minority candidates or ones with military backgrounds, groups that West says are severely under-represented in the legislature.

“This country used to look to the military for elected leaders,” West said, “and we want to help change that again.”

The Guardian Fund takes off from West’s earlier contributions that helped 13 military candidates win in the 2012 election.

Allen West sums it up in a recap of CPAC 2013, Allen West Guardian Fund and more

westpac-logo

Dear Friends

Between launching the Allen West Guardian Fund and speaking at and attending the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) just outside Washington, DC, it’s been an eventful week. You’re probably surprised to hear from me again, but I promise I won’t ask you for money today. I simply want to recap what’s happened over the past 5 days.

  • On Tuesday, we announced the Guardian Fund and our goal to raise $5 million over the next two years to elect 12 hard-charging, constitutional conservatives to Congress. Thanks to your unwavering support and that of thousands of patriots like you, we’re well on the way to meeting our goal.
  • On Thursday, I gave one of the opening addresses at CPAC and outlined what we as conservatives must do to start winning elections again and reminded the audience why we must combat the Obama administration’s radical leftist agenda at every turn. I encourage you to check out the speech here, because the one-liners the media have reported don’t do it justice.
  • I spent the remainder of CPAC meeting with activists and listening to the concerns, ambitions, and plans conservatives across America have for the next few years. I returned home to Florida last night with a renewed sense of hope and today, my faith in our conservative movement is greater than ever.

I’m very excited about what the next two years will bring for conservatives, and of course the Guardian Fund. We have our work cut out for us, but I’m confident that our values will prevail over the radical left and we’ll succeed in our mission.

Thank you for your continued support and friendship.

Steadfast and loyal,

Allen West “A government truly “of the people” must be fully representative of those it governs” Launching the Allen West Foundation

AWF1

Organization seeks to educate and train aspiring minority and veteran conservative leaders.  

Boca Raton, FL – Former United States Congressman and retired Lt. Colonel Allen West today announced the launch of The Allen West Foundation, a Section 501(c)(4) non-profit organization with the mission of educating and inspiring the next generation of conservative leaders within the minority and veteran communities nationwide.

A government truly “of the people” must be fully representative of those it governs. Both minorities and veterans are under-represented in elected office at both the state and federal levels, and the Foundation seeks to educate and motivate members of these groups to increase their civic participation and representation in government.

“From the time I first took an oath to support and defend our Constitution as a young Second Lieutenant in the United States Army, I have committed my life to our nation and its constitutional principles,” said West, “I feel both a duty and an honor to encourage others to follow a similar path.”

The Allen West Foundation will:

  • Host issue-based forums designed to educate participants on important public policy matters and encourage greater civic engagement.
  • Conduct educational seminars and provide other resources for those considering becoming more engaged in their communities or running for public office.
  • Advocate on behalf of minorities and veterans on critical issues facing their communities.
