Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it on to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children’s children what it was once like in the United States where men were free.”President Ronald Reagan, 1961
Who We Are
The Constitutional Coalition is a tax-exempt educational and research organization that does not endorse candidates or parties. We are led by an executive director who is assisted by a panel of board members, office staff, experts in issue research, and volunteers. We do not receive government money and depend solely upon individual contributions. We strive to educate our nation’s citizens in understanding and comprehending the U.S. Constitution and Declaration of Independence, acknowledging that they contain absolutes that are the basis for our laws, and therefore, recognizing that God is the giver of our freedoms.
Mission, Purpose & Philosophy
Unique in Missouri, The Constitutional Coalition was established to secure our future through education, publications, and leadership training. Contemporary issues are examined through the perspective of the Missouri and United States Constitutions concurrent with documents from our Founding Fathers. Research includes governmental affairs, taxes, national defense, education, family needs, property rights, environmental questions, and other vital issues that impact every citizen of the state and nation. The result of that research is then presented in a straightforward, user-friendly format.
“As part of our mission, The Constitutional Coalition publishes FRONT LINE. This informative voter’s guide provides information on registered candidates through Candidate Surveys, biographically studies on judges that are up for retention in Court Watch, and enlightening articles such as “Staying Safe in an Unsafe World,” “Immigration or Invasion,” “Silencing Speech,” “Battle for the Brain,” and “The Long War and Common Core.”
In addition, we host an annual conference where national experts come together with grass root leaders, educators and concerned citizens and present the principles and understandings that must be taught in schools for America to remain free. Dangerous national policy and bad education is documented, while good public policy, curriculums and understandings are identified and encouraged. The Educational Policy Conference is in its 29th year.
The Constitutional Coalition has also trained men and women of all ages with leadership potential through New Leaders. Some of the nation’s top experts in communication, research and organization come to Missouri to work one-on-one with individuals who exhibit intelligence, wisdom, knowledge and moral courage. In intensive and ongoing sessions, new leaders are equipped to understand our form of government and are instructed how to research the facts, analyze a situation, formulate strategies to accomplish desired goals and communicate their position persuasively.
Our philosophy is best seen through the writings and speeches of America’s Founding Fathers and leaders. The more thoroughly we study our godly heritage, the better equipped we are to solve today’s challenges.
