About the Lincoln Project

The Lincoln Project is a political action committee (PAC) that was founded in December 2019 by a group of former Republican political strategists with the goal of defending democracy from the populist nationalistic ideals and agenda of Donald Trump, his allies in Congress, and the far-right media. 

The Lincoln Project’s mission is to hold accountable those who would violate their oaths to the Constitution and would place their loyalty to others before their loyalty to the American people and democracy. 

During the 2020 election cycle, The Lincoln Project launched more than 300 ads attacking Donald Trump and his allies and played an instrumental role in removing the former president from office. 

The Lincoln Project continues to fight radical extremism, the far-right media, populist nationalism, and every elected leader who ascribes to the MAGA agenda.

There is no time for complacency.

There is no time for living room activism. Every day must be spent asking ourselves if we’re doing our part, if we’re doing enough to ensure that the grand idea called America continues.

Thank you for joining us in this fight.
