What we are:
The US Defenders is a grass roots manpower movement formed from within each Confederation of Clubs from every state. Composed of State Citizen Biker manpower from Motorcycle Clubs and C.O.I.R (Coalition of Independent Riders) representatives, the US Defenders work in solidarity for the common good of our communities and to defend the Constitution of these Unites States of America.
The US Defenders stand ready to implement and support motorcycle rights organizations and other organization’s “Call-to-Actions” that are identified as falling within each Confederation of Club’s agenda. The US Defenders also “Stand at the Ready” when it comes to assisting your State’s Civil Defense in emergency situations such as tornado or flood damage that may befall our communities.
The US Defenders program was commissioned by National Commander Bandido Gimmi Jimmy in the early fall of 2007 and has taken on a force of its own. Composed of members from every state COC and their COIR representatives, these freedom fighters have been appointed by their club, or selected from the independent rider community. The US Defenders units, led by each state’s Secretary of Defense and his unit commanders, will report to the National Lieutenant Commander who will assist you in all phases of the US Defenders program. Commissioned by your state’s COC, each US Defender will wear a state COC sanctioned US Defender patch that cannot be sold or traded; it is the property of the state. Any changes in personnel will need to be coordinated with the unit’s commander to which they are assigned.
The US Defenders program is not a Motorcycle Rights Organization (MRO) such as the TMRA, TMRA II, ABATE, AIM, MRF and the AMA, but manageable units of Motorcycle Clubs and Independent Riders manpower.
All US Defenders will be trained in “Call-to-Action” grass root strategies such as letter writing campaigns, emailing and phoning state and national legislators and canvassing crowds who will then take that training back to their clubs or groups to implement the action. Open training seminars in grass roots strategies like letter writing to legislators will be conducted by state and national leaders and teachers from around the country.
One of the most important tools of a US Defenders Unit will be the US Defender’s Booths that will be set up and manned at most major events and rallies across your state including motorcycle rallies, drag races, car and truck shows, etc. The mission of the US Defenders Booths will include registering voters, handing out US Defender and state COC literature, signing up C.O.I.R individuals, completing surveys and distributing “I SUPPORT” gear whose donations go directly to help fund the movement.
The US Defenders program promises to be the most exciting grass roots movement destined to spread across the country, all us working in concert together can achieve great things. Motorcycle club members, independent riders and even non-riders alike are coming together in solidarity in an effort to defend our constitutional liberties and to protect our right to pursue the biker lifestyle that we live day and night.
Remember, “One heart, One Voice”!
