JPFO Ambassadors Page

Check out The JPFO Volunteer Menu, our smorgasbord of activities dedicated members take upon themselves to promote the values and ideals of the most dedicated civil rights group in America, like the Ambassadors program. With uncertain times ahead, it is time for JPFO to grow—and you can be part of that! "But I'm only one person" you grouse, like so many others who might know better: Hey, friend, everyone is only one person! Judah Maccabee was only one person. Abraham Lincoln was only one person. Make your mark. Make a stand. Stand up. Ask for The JPFO Volunteer Menu, and make a choice. You can make a difference in the struggle (look up that word!) to influence liberty and preserve the right to keep and bear arms, for all citizens.
