Lift Others, Better Ourselves
We are conservative advocates for those who are poor and disadvantaged.
We care deeply about lifting every person in need.
We are also concerned about the political and social divides that grip our communities and nation.
We believe that by uniting with all people of good will to lift our neighbors in need, not only will we help those who are poor and disadvantaged transcend poverty, but we will also transcend the harmful divides that exist today.
In other words, working together, regardless of our political affiliation, to give the most vulnerable, disenfranchised members of society opportunities to flourish will also rescue our society and politics.
Working together to help the most vulnerable members of society is a responsibility we must fulfill, and we must not let political lines keep us from doing it.
, and we should reach across political lines as needed to do it.
We invite you to join us.
Lift every person in need to prosperity through sound public policy that allows for every opportunity to gain freedom through self-reliance and the dignity of earned success.
Transcend Together is a nonpartisan, non-profit 501(c)(3) organization that seeks to educate and influence decision makers
educate policymakers and other people of good will and unite with them to influence our laws and public discourse in a way that lifts all people to self-reliance and prosperity.
