10 Sentinels in Florida had a private meeting to speak with their Member of Congress, Rep. Ron DeSantis (R-FL)

Are you fed up with typical politicians? Are you frustrated with the government spending too much and for blatantly disregarding the constitution?

We are too, which is why Heritage Action created the Sentinel Program, a network of 13,000 conservative activists who get training and coaching from Heritage Action to be the leading edge of the conservative movement.

What is Sentinel?

Sentinels are knowledgeable conservative activists who take meaningful action to hold their member of Congress accountable.

Sentinels come from all backgrounds across the country with the common goal of holding Congress accountable. Heritage Ation works with you individually, building your knowledge, growing your influence, and preparing you to take meaningful action. Sentinels commit to partnering with us to stand guard for freedom, lead in their circles of influence, and communicate with elected officials. They know the issues, grow their activist skills and networks and go out and lead in their communities.
