The Rockford Sons of Liberty

There's a progressive patriot group based out of Rockford we call the Sons of Liberty. Our purpose is to heed the call whenever boots on the ground are needed for a MoveOn, PDA, CodePINK, & OCCUPY event, or for any other kind rally, for that matter, whereby democratic values are advanced.

The people will not be ignored.

We stared down the Tea Party standing outside of Rockford's
Bank of America demanding banking reform while they demanded deregulation.

We've protested both Joe Walsh and John Boehner, telling them that their Scorched Earth policies weren't welcome in Illinois' 17th Congressional District.

We were there when they needed volunteers to collect signatures for Scott Walker's recall.

We were there when Sensata workers needed support with the tent city they set up across the street from the Freeport
plant that Mitt Romney boxed up and shipped offto Red China.

We were there with camera in hand when Bobby Schilling refused to face those same workers.

We're just shy of 300 members, and we need good folks who love the constitution in the Quad Cities, Peoria, and Sterling/Rock Falls area.

Stand up and be counted!

Never been an activist for a cause you believe in? No sweat - we were new at it too, at one time, and I can tell you we're getting better all of the time.

Not a great spokesperson? Don't worry about it and smile for the camera. You'll know why you're locking arms with us while the groups we lend our support do all the talking.

We don't want your money.

We want YOU.

Most of us are over 30, but the college kids show up at our events, too.
