Remain Independent
In the past, most fight-the-Right groups have been part of a Left party or formation. We have neither wanted nor sought any affiliation, though we have developed innumerable collegial ties with other groups in the progressive movement.

Cite Everything
We back up everything we say with documentation and avoid rhetoric or inaccessible language.

Act as a Public Resource
We operate with transparency and make our materials, including our substantial library, available to the public.

Differentiate Between Right-Wing Leaders and Followers
We track only leaders of the Right, not followers, and we seek to educate the public on the difference.

Move the Conversation Forward
We do not promote hate, but instead work to advance understanding.

Hold True to Progressive Values
We defend free speech and other civil liberties, even when the speech itself is hateful.
