SMF is here to protect our God given constitutional rights. Our goal is to ensure Equal Protection under the laws of the United States of America and each State. We aim to restore the voices of you, the Silent Majority.



  • Our Genesis

    Silent Majority Foundation's roots were cultivated early in each of our director's lives. Love of country, God, and Freedom are central principles for each of us. We have accepted the torch from our Founding Fathers to serve and protect our fellow citizens and their natural rights. This is OUR PASSION!

    In the spring of 2021, the seed of the Foundation was planted, and it sprouted on August 16, 2021.

  • Our Labor

    Since our genesis, SMF has spent countless hours educating, advocating, and fighting for our God-given freedom. We've successfully educated many friends of the Foundation on how self-advocate from the single mother to large corporate and federal employees. Our Labor includes protecting Second Amendment rights, small business property interests, ensuring election integrity, and forcing government transparency and access to all.

  • Our Battles

    SMF has filed lawsuits protecting individual freedom. Because this is our passion, we will continue to file lawsuits to protect our liberty. Our lawsuits range from representing a single person and groups of hundreds of government employees and servicemen and women standing against medical tyranny to challenging the Washington State legislature's impairment of our Second Amendment Rights. Through our standing as a non-profit organization, YOU have challenged the Governor of Washington's "emergency" powers.

Through our efforts, thousands of Americans have retained employment throughout the COVID pandemic, parents have had more access to educational facilities and students have stood for their rights. We've obtained tens of thousands of pages of government documents that shed light on violations of our rights. We've helped Legislators regain the ability to represent their constituents in person.
