WASHINGTON, Sept. 8, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Feds for Medical Freedom, a group of over 9,000 workers who came together to fight vaccine mandates, has changed its name to “Feds For Freedom” and is expanding its scope and mission.
The newly relaunched Feds For Freedom will work with a broad coalition of stakeholders to advocate and litigate for constitutional rights while working to reform the federal service to be more accountable, transparent, and representative of the values of the American people.
“Our group was formed when thousands of us came together to fight the COVID vaccine mandates and take a stand for employees and contractors who were being targeted, harassed, and wrongfully terminated for their beliefs,” said Feds For Freedom President Marcus Thornton. “What we discovered is this persecution at the hands of our government was a symptom of a deeper problem: a federal service that is unaccountable and does not reflect the values of the Americans it claims to serve. Our mission is to fix that by working within the ranks of government employees and contractors to promote accountability, transparency, and values that align with the American public’s.”
Feds For Freedom has already successfully challenged the Biden Administration’s vaccine mandates in court, winning a Fifth Circuit Court case that blocked implementation of the mandates and filing several suits against the government seeking damages for employees whose religious and Constitutional rights were violated. The group is now planning to expand its efforts, focusing on reforms that promote diversity of opinion, professionalism, and non-partisan service across all federal agencies.
“The federal government should never be a weapon wielded by a political party, or an ideology, or one part of the country against another,” said Thornton. “Our goal is to ensure that federal workers are truly serving the American people, rather than operating as partisan enforcers.”
To complement its expanded mission and to serve as a conduit for conversation and debate, Feds For Freedom is also launching a new podcast available on iTunes and other platforms. Entitled, “The Feds: Insiders Bringing Accountability, Integrity, and Reform to a Broken Bureaucracy,” the podcast will feature guests discussing how to reform and improve the federal service to better reflect the values of the American people.
