MISSION: The Coffee Party Movement gives voice to Americans who want to see cooperation in government. We recognize that the federal government is not the enemy of the people, but the expression of our collective will, and that we must participate in the democratic process in order to address the challenges that we face as Americans. As voters and grassroots volunteers, we will support leaders who work toward positive solutions, and hold accountable those who obstruct them.

At the conclusion of the Constitutional Convention, Ben Franklin was asked "Well, Doctor, what have we got--a Republic or a Monarchy?"

Franklin's response, "A Republic, if you can keep it," is no less important for us today.
