OUR Mission

Common Defense is a diverse, grassroots organization of U.S. veterans and military family members who are fighting to preserve the core values we swore to uphold and defend. Together we vow to protect our communities from hate and violence, to serve on the front lines for social, economic, and environmental justice, and to champion a truly equitable and representative democracy.

More and more evidence suggests that Trump has dangerous ties to Russia, and we are calling for a full investigation into these allegations. Will you join us in demanding the truth?


Check out the latest coverage of our work. In just the last few months we’ve staged actions across the country, organized veterans to join the Women’s March, challenged the Muslim Ban in court, debated Trump surrogates, and delivered hundreds of thousands signatures opposing Trump’s agenda of authoritarianism and hate.
