WHO WE ARE
Principles First is a 501(c)(4) grassroots organization built by citizens disillusioned with the current state of our politics. Together, we are committed to revitalizing and championing conservative principles in the 21st century.
We are a purely volunteer, anti-grift operation. No one draws a salary off our efforts. Every dollar we raise goes directly into growing our movement and spreading our message.
HOW WE BEGAN
In early 2019, a few Republicans concerned about the health of conservatism organized a series of meet-ups across the country alongside CPAC. The aim was to start a conversation about the future of the conservative movement. Those initial gatherings led to over 50 meetings around the country, open letters to Congress, and a Summit on Principled Conservatism that convened more than 300 grassroots activists in Washington, DC.
