We’ll get it to the Candidates before the debate


The foremost responsibility of the President is to keep all of our citizens safe so they can enjoy the blessings of life in America.

We face a deadly threat from terrorist attacks abroad and here at home. We ask the candidates for President to pledge that eliminating this terrorist threat will be a top priority of their administration and that they will use our military, diplomatic, intelligence and law enforcement capabilities to stop the terrorists before they can strike.

We also expect the President to make American values matter and show they are a positive alternative to the violence and intolerance of the terrorists.

OUR ISSUESWhat Matters to Us


Seeking safety and security for our families, our communities and ourselves is universal; and one of the most important aspects of our lives. America Matters believes thoughtful diplomacy coupled with effective national defense provides the best solution.

American Values

The Statue of Liberty says, “Give me your tired, your poor, Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free.” This call comes with the requirement that to live here people must share our values by supporting the Constitution and laws of this country.


Those who have served our country in uniform deserve the highest level of care and support once they return to civilian life. America Matters is dedicated to ensuring this through active engagement to provide policies and programs worthy of their sacrifices and service.


Providing quality education is vital to the continued strength and prosperity of our country. It is essential that the next generations receive the knowledge and skills they need to succeed and we must ensure equal opportunities in education to allow them to do so.
