For Immediate Release
May 13, 2013
Since their inception, many 9/12 groups have been singled out and received a letter from the IRS trying to silence their voice. It was clear to us early on that our organization was being scrutinized due to implied affiliation with Glenn Beck and patriot organizations.
The 9/12 Project was founded on principles and the idea of standing together and to show that you are not alone. It is in principle that we objected to the obvious overreach of federal agencies beyond its authority. It is our groups spirit of personal responsibility and accountability that many of the 912 groups made a principled stance against the IRS early on and demonstrated to an overreaching administration that WE SURROUND THEM.
We are proud of the thousands of individual citizens that stood up to the tyranny of the IRS and would not comply to their demands but made a principled stance. With the recent revelations from IRS officials, as being reported in the press, we feel they were warranted in their original concerns that they were unfairly targeted and just in their actions.
Yvonne Donnelly National Chair for the 9/12 Project said “We will not permit this to become a distraction and will remain focused on our core mission of inspiring individuals and groups to connect with their communities through education, service and dedication to our 9 Principles and 12 Values. We will accept IRS apology as being less than appropriate and timing suspect. We believe applications of 9/12 groups specifically were targeted and coordinated and people should be held accountable.”
Eric Wilson, National 9/12 Co-Chair and director of the Kentucky 912 had these addition comments– “while this is a victory for free speech and liberty in regards to the IRS recent apology, we still believe there are many unanswered questions the IRS and administration should still be forced to respond too.”
The 9/12 Project operates a civic organization for the purpose of charity, education, and recreational purposes. Their mission is to inspire individuals and groups to connect with their communities through education, service and dedication to our 9 Principles and 12 Values.”
