Welcome to The Federalist Coalition!

The Federalist Coalition is a true grassroots movement created, managed, and fueled by everyday Americans. Our goal is to remind our fellow citizens of the importance of Federalism, how it relates to the Constitution of the United States, and why this is imperative for our nation. We understand that America is comprised of many ethnicities, religions, and ideals and we all have different needs. That is why we are a Coalition.
