Oath Keepers is an outreach organization primarily of and for military and law enforcement to support them in upholding the oaths they swore to support and defend the Constitution.
Our mission is to reach, teach, and inspire military and law enforcement officers to reaffirm their oath to the U.S. Constitution, vowing to remain true to that oath even if given unconstitutional or unlawful orders. The primary concern is that our military and law enforcement officers do not blindly follow unconstitutional orders should they arise, especially as they relate to actions against U.S. citizens.
Who We Are
Oath Keepers is a non-partisan association of former and currently serving military, reserves, National Guard, veterans, Peace Officers, and Fire Fighters who will fulfill the Oath we swore, with the support of like-minded citizens who take an Oath to stand with us, to support and defend the Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic, so help us God. Our Oath is to support and defend the Constitution and we ask God to help us do exactly that.
We are united by a common concern regarding government officials who violate their oath of office particularly by refusing to support and defend the U.S. Constitution. Our oath requires that we hold such violating officials accountable.
What We Do
The general purpose of Oath Keepers is therefore to fulfill the Oath we swore to support and defend the Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic, so help us God.
Our motto: “Not on our watch!”
More specifically, we aim to assist soldiers and law enforcement officers with a better understanding of the U.S. Constitution, including the principle that when you swear to support and defend the Constitution, no supervisor, no government official, no citizen has the authority to order you to violate that oath by acting counter to the Constitution.
To this end, every Oath Keeper is tasked with reaching out, teaching, and inspiring anyone who wishes to better understand the obligation one takes on when he or she takes an oath to support and defend the Constitution, particularly active-duty military, police, and peace officer personnel.
All too often, little thought is given to the oath we take; however, it is that oath that is a contract with the good people of our communities, our state, and our nation; and those good people should and must hold every oath-taker accountable according to that contract.
Our core policy of REACH, TEACH, and INSPIRE provides the opportunity for all to better understand this contract that each oath actually is. By better understanding, we can be better assured that this contract, that is our oath, will be faithfully followed and oath-takers will gladly become life-long oath keepers.
First and foremost, we are about holding ourselves accountable according to our oath and helping others hold themselves accountable as well. It is all about better understanding our responsibilities so we can all become more honorable people so we can have a more honorable nation.This is what we do, you can help us do it even better.
This is what we do, you can help us do it even better.
