WHO WE ARE
NotOnMyWatch is a diverse national network of groups and individuals organizing people for social and economic justice, environmental sustainability, and fair and clean politics. We are community members, activists, teachers and tech nerds, parents and policy writers, bloggers and farmers, attorneys and graphic designers and more. We are black and white and brown, gay and straight, Muslim, Christian, Jewish and atheist; we are from all walks of life, faiths, industries, and regions of the country. We are Americans who recognize that our greatest strength is in our diversity.
WHAT WE BELIEVE
We believe in the fundamental American values of equality, inclusivity, freedom and justice for all. We believe in the importance of local living and being, and in the power of networks of like-minded and activated citizens.
We also believe that recent political events in the United States are not a cause for despair, but a call to action. It is a time to energize, organize, and mobilize for transformational change that advances the cause of social and economic justice, environmental sustainability, and of fair and corruption-free politics.
