SEE RESPONSE FROM PRESIDENT TRUMP to OLC’s letter. Members of OLC voted to send a letter to President Trump encouraging him to work with the Freedom Caucus in crafting a health care bill.
In response to organizations at odds with many of our affiliate organizations, and the Rural Organizing Project calling out individuals in their “Up-In-Arms” manifesto, OLC has formed a committee to educate people on the “Patriot Movement.”
The first document to be shared is “What is a ‘Patriot’?”
The committee will be putting out a statement of what we are and what we stand for in rebuttal to the Rural Organizing Project.
