STATEMENT OF PURPOSE:
We are a statewide community group called NY Stands Up!, which is a branch of Pam Popper’s Make Americans Free Again movement. Our purpose is to support and maintain medical and civil freedoms for ourselves, our families, and our larger communities. We are non-partisan and apolitical. All are welcome here, regardless of political affiliation, faith, creed, nationality, ethnicity, age, gender identity, or sexual orientation. The only requirement for membership is a desire to stand for freedom and build community.
Our mission is to file lawsuits that will challenge the governor's declaration that Covid-19 has of an "emergency" in order to restore our freedoms and reclaim New York. We will inform New Yorkers about the reality of Covid-19 with data driven science as we act to secure our Constitutional rights and preserve them for future generations.
WHO WE ARE:
We are a rapidly growing group of freedom loving New Yorkers who insist that our Constitutional rights be honored by our elected leaders and will hold them accountable when they fail to do so. We are dedicated to preserving our freedoms for future generations, raising awareness of freedoms that are being threatened, and facilitating the election of lawmakers and executives who will honor the rule of law and or Constitutional rights.
