The mission of American Unity Fund, a 501(c)(4) non-profit organization, is freedom. We are dedicated to advancing the cause of freedom for gay and lesbian Americans by making the conservative case that freedom truly means freedom for everyone.
Republicans believe strongly in the American Dream. Too often government serves as an obstacle to prosperity for millions of Americans – confiscating their wealth with escalating taxes, strangling their businesses with burdensome regulations and undermining our economy with unsustainable spending and increasing uncertainty. For Americans who happen to be gay or lesbian, it goes one step farther, denying them the same rights and responsibilities extended to every other taxpaying family. We believe the American Dream belongs to all of us, regardless of our orientation.
Because of our commitment to these values, pro-freedom conservatives, major GOP donors and ordinary American citizens who care about their gay and lesbian neighbors have come together in a new effort to build more Republican support for gay rights. That effort is American Unity Fund.
Republicans and our nation are on a journey. Each day, more and more Americans are seeing their gay and lesbian neighbors through the prism of their own lives – recognizing they are deserving of the same rights and responsibilities under the law. Americans are coming to the realization that it is wrong for government to pick winners and losers among us and to misuse the power we grant it to restrict the freedoms of individuals solely because of their orientation. And Americans are reaching the conclusion that committed couples are good for our society – taking responsibility for each other so the government doesn’t have to.
Building the best future for our country requires us to stand up on the right side of history for freedom and equality for all Americans.
