About US

Mission Statement

Centerline Action is a 501(c)4 advocacy organization focused on advancing legislation centered on defending core constitutional freedoms and liberties, preserving a free market economy, and limiting the role of government in Americans’ everyday lives.

Purpose Statement

Conventional political wisdom and prevailing media narratives today are mistaken; Americans are more united than we are divided.

Politics has grown increasingly toxic in recent years as ideological extremes advance strategies of division over unity. But public survey after public survey tells the same story: there is a growing – and often forgotten – majority that wants both parties in Congress and statehouses across America to work together and come up with commonsense solutions to the challenges we collectively face

Centerline Action is committed to addressing the needs and desires of this forgotten majority, by advocating for policies that will positively impact all Americans, defending core constitutional freedoms and liberties, and harnessing the opportunity and innovation derived from a free market economy.
