Our Mission & History
The MOVCAC organization hasn’t always been called MOVCAC. In fact, the change came after the so-called insurrection on January 6th in Washington DC, which has resulted in numerous Americans being arrested, tried, and receiving prison time—many of whom were only in the national capital to hear a speech by former president Donald Trump.
Founded in 2009 by Glenn and Karen Newman, the organization was called Marietta 9-12 Project, and meetings were held in the Newman home for several weeks. As it grew in number, a larger location was needed, and the current Marietta location was established.
Glenn Beck created the idea of 9-12 organizations based upon 9 principles and 12 values with the goal of bringing people back to the place they were on September 12, 2001. According to Beck, on that day Americans were united as one, standing together to protect the values and principles of the greatest nation ever created. Marietta 9-12 Project’s goals were to educate Americans, evaluate political candidates, and motivate people to get involved in American freedom.
The group has grown; there are now several chapters in West Virginia and Ohio, and more requests to open chapters in Kentucky.
The Nine Principles are—
America is good
I believe in God and He is the center of my life
I must always try to be a more honest person than I was yesterday
The family is sacred
If you break the law, you pay the penalty
I have a right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness, but there is no guarantee of equal results
I work hard for what I have and I will share it with those I want to
The government cannot force me to be charitable
It is not un-American for me to disagree with authority or to share my personal opinion
The government works for me. I do not answer to them; they answer to me
The Twelve Values are—
Honesty, Reverence, Hope. Thrift, Humility, Charity, Sincerity, Moderation, Hard work, Courage, Personal Responsibility and Friendship
These principles and values are still fundamental to the organization, but after the January 6th issue, it was decided that it needed an additional focus–action. Thus, the Motivate Organize Volunteer Citizens Action Coalition was born and members are involved in team activities, such as Voter Integrity, Protecting the Innocent, Education/Schools, Podcasting and Publishing, State and Local Government, Wellness/Preparedness, Intercessory Prayer, Media and Data Research, Events and Sign Making, and Mentoring/Service.
We are a community of people who are tired of the fight between the left and right and Democrats versus Republicans. We are solution seekers who want to be involved but often feel lost between the polar extremes. MOVCAC is designed to assist citizens in becoming engaged on a local level. We provide information, tools, and support to those who want to make their communities better.
