In December of 2010 over 1,000 citizens from each of the 50 states gathered in New York to launch a movement – No Labels was founded that day as a way of channeling the nation’s frustration with the Beltway’s idea of business as usual into a productive effort to change D.C.’s way of doing things, while offering dozens of constructive solutions to the nation’s problems along the way. Since then, No Labels has been working to bring a new politics of goals-focused problem solving to our government.

No Labels has never called for people to entirely shed their party affiliations.
